| From AIS Bulletin #265 April 1987 Introducing TEA LEAVES (Byers '87). Sdlg. C49-10l: Sky Hooks X Violet Classic. TB, 35", M & RE. Greenish bamboo tan standards; very pale blue-violet falls, deep greenish brown-gold hafts and blue beards tipped gold. An excellent and distinctive sib of Doublemint. Very similarin form, substance, branching, etc. Although they are both "greenish", this is entirely different. Doublemint glows light and bright while this is kind of shadowy and mysterious. Very vigorous and an excellent rebloomer, giving loads of stalks here starting in early Oct. I haven't used it yet, but it should be an excellent parent for "different" rebloomers of real quality. Should work well with space age lines also. $30.00. Moonshine Gardens.
