Hybridizer's Comment : Another interesting seedling coming from Ginger Ice, the lovely apricot amoena that has given such fine seediings. Fine Drop is a huge blocky iridescent purple black self with a plush sheen on the falls. Beards are rich purple bronze. Satisfactory branching that is nice and strong and makes a great spectacle in the garden. Fertile. Sister to 'Beauty School'.
