■(TB) 'Seashell Music'

1964, Ernst

'Seashell Music' (Larry Ernst, R. 1964). Seedling# 26-61. TB, 36" (91 cm). Midseason bloom. Color Class-W2O. Standards burgundy-copper; Falls white edged burgundy-copper. 'My Honeycomb' X 'Fairy Fable'. Cooley 1965.

See below:


From Cooley's Gardens catalog 1965: A blend of rose and copper etched on creamy white, remindful of some of the colorful seashells from tropic shores. Huge in size, ideal in form, and flowers of thick enamel-like substance are produced on 40-inch stems. This is from My Honeycomb x Fairy Fable, so you can see it is one-half pink and should provide good opportunity for breeding. Standards are often slightly gnarled at the base. No 26-61. Each $20.00.
