From AIS Bulletin #233 Spring 1979 Introducing LAST DANCE (James McWhirter), TB, M-L, 36" $25.00. Sister to the popular Tequila Sunrise but completely different. The upright S. are near pink with peach infusion; pale orchid- lavender F. are decorated with bright tangerine beards. Flowers, large, in perfect proportion to bloomstalks, foliage, etc. S. are straight up with lots of substance to assure that the beauty of the flower will remain until the last dance. Amigo's Guitar X Gaulter Sdlg. 68-593 (Laurie x San Leandro). Cottage Gardens.
