| ORANGE CHARIOT (Fay '64) had three stalks finished, one with a single flower in bloom, and four with two blooms open. The color appears to be a light orange but is actually spectrum orange on the chart, midway between yellow and red. Again that bright coral beard and the usual healthy blue-green foliage.
