■(TB) 'Sable'

1938, Cook

'Sable' (Paul Cook, R. 1936) TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-B1D. ((('Innocenza' x 'Blue Boy') x ('Cinnabar')) x (('Cinnabar')) x (('Innocenza' x 'Blue Boy') x ('Cinnabar') x 'Seminole' x 'Cinnabar')). Honorable Mention 1937; Certificate of Merit Rome 1938; Award of Merit 1940. Longfield 1938.

1939 Checklist citation: H.M., A.I.S. 1937; Bull. A.I.S. 66:88 Sept. 1937.

1949 Checklist citation: A.M., A.I.S. 1940; Bull. A.I.S. 78:3 July 1940.

SABLE has also been used in his hybridizing, and he had several seedlings of the same color, one of which, No. 15039, was, in my opinion, the equal of SABLE in color, was of better form, and had a better branched stalk. In discussing the matter with Mr. Cook, he was extremely cautious about introducing a second variety of the SABLE coloring. Several of the judges, however, were of the opinion that a seedling showing decided improvements over its parent should not be discarded. [William J. McKee, "Our President Travels", A.I.S. Bulletin 78 (Jul. 1940): 11.]
