From AIS Bulletin #305 April 1997 Introducing Radioland (D. R. Spence 1997) S83-336-1 TB, 39", E-M. The 1930's was a time of great sorrow and a time of a dream of a better future. You had both the depression and the rise of Art Deco styling reflecting the world of tomorrow. During this era radio was at its peak. We had stars of the airwaves who had voices much more famous than their faces. Radioland is named in honor of that great era. A creation which would easily be at home in an Art Deco setting. The standards are pale gold with 1/4" darker gold halo and are domed and closed. The falls are white ground with 1/4" pale rose dotted plicata border and are very round with nearly touching hafts and heavy flare. The entire flower form, for that matter, is exceptionally round and features very good substance and pleasing ruffling. There are 2 branches plus spur and terminal with 8 buds and near perfectly spaced flowers. Show stalks are frequently produced by Radioland in our garden. The beards are old gold. The plant is also robust in its growth, which comes from its reblooming parent Spyglass Hill. However, Radioland does not rebloom for us. Certainly our best introduction to date! ((Spyglass Hill X DSIT-2 (Odyssey X Smoky Jo)). $40.00. Master Creations.
