From AIS Bulletin #285 April 1992 Introducing Willow Maid (L. A. Fort '92), TB, 34", M-L. (7-9 buds), EC'90, Seedling No. 86-133-A. We call her Willow Maid because she looks like a story book elf maiden dancing among the willows. Ruffled and laced, pastel bluelavender falls are set off by equally soft pink standards. A remarkably clean flower in the blue and pink bitone line. Falls are blue-lavender deepening toward the edge. and standards are subtle pink, blending toward a blue-lavender at the base. The soft sherbert beards are tipped white. $30.00. Fort Iris Gardens.
