From AIS Bulletin #297 April 1995 Introducing DIRECT FLIGHT (Niswonger '95) Sdlg. 55-92: Pink Blue Genes X 58-88: (Matinee Idol x Pink Ballerina). TB, 34" (86 cm), M. This is one of the nice outcomes on working for a pink with a blue beard. The front tip of the beard is blue but not very prominent in the deep tangerine beard. It is a deep pink with blue infusion approaching rose pink. The nice branching and easy growth makes it a desirable addition to any collection. The name was suggested by Polly Chism of Festus, MO. Fertile both ways. $35.00. Cape Iris.
