From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2008: GUESS WHO I AM (Black 08) small flowered TB Early Midseason 35” (89cm). Guess Who I Am is the second introduction this year in my line of small flowered tall beardeds which don't fit comfortably within the TB class. Lightly ruffled flowers have standards of pale cameo pink covered with a network of fine, slightly darker veins. Styles are peach pink. Paler pink falls have slightly darker texture veins. Beards are fully saturated tropical tangerine. Slender stalks have 3 branches and 9-10 buds. A clump filled with these airy little cuties is a special treat. Sdlg.
