X 'Eternal Love'
. B Jones 1972.
| From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing SEA VENTURE-67-64-1 (Avis x Eternal Love). Named for a sailing vessel which played a small part in early American history, Sea Venture is one of the most unusual and beautiful color patterns I have seen for some time, and many who have seen it say it is the most distinctive of the seedlings I have raised. The standards are pale blue, but with a large, neat and dramatic flush of deep marine or ink blue at the base. They are ruffled and swirled together at the top. The wide flaring and ruffled falls are pale blue. The plant is vigorous; the stalk is well branched, nearly always showing three flowers open at one time. 34". HC 1971. $25.00. Bennett Jones.
