| From AIS Bulletin #186 July 1967 Introducing MARQUESAN SKIES (1967) No. 81 (ARCTIC FLAME sib. X BLUEBIRD BLUE) X FLEETA. 32". A pale violet with flaming red beard. Excellent substance, flowers last for four or more days. Well branched stems produce nine or more buds, giving a long season of bloom. This has been one of our most satisfying parents when crossed with whites with red beards, blues, oranges and pinks. Gives seedlings with remarkably good substance; foliage and plant are healthy and vigorous. Rapid increaser and dependable bloomer for us. Very fertile both ways. $25.00. Clarence Blocher.
