■(TB) 'Stilettos'

2009, Johnson

'Stilettos' (Thomas Johnson, R. 2009). Seedling# TW3B. TB, 39” (99 cm), Late midseason bloom. Standards laced blue-pink; style arms buff pink; falls buff pink, slightly darker hafts and edges; beards orange, slender violet horns; slight fragrance. 'Ballet Royale' X 'Corps de Ballet'. Mid-America 2009. Honorable Mention 2012.

Hybridizer's Comment: Think Tina Turner, think spike heels, think slender violet horns at the end of orange beards, think Stilettos, now you have the picture. Strongly ruffled and laced blue pink standards surround peach pink styles. Ruffled and laced, paler buff pink falls have slightly darker hafts and margins. Statuesque stalks have 3-4 branches and 8-10 buds. Stilettos is a real class act. Enjoy the show.
