From AIS Bulletin #237 April 1980 Introducing FANCY TALES (Shoop '80). TB, 36", M. This is a bicolor-falled amoena with white standards. Falls are two colors-orange hafts extend half way down, then concord purple color finishes. Very startling! Tangerine beard. Fine plant, stalk and branching. Different and new! #75-22: Involving Whole Cloth, pink amoena seedlings, Wine and Roses. $25.00. George Shoop.
George Shoop has a wild colored flower in FANCY TALES. It is three distinct colors! The stands are an off white and the falls are brilliant orange yellow halfway down, with the remainder of the falls a deep purple. To top this off, there are tangerine beards. Startling!
