From AIS Bulletin #265 April 1987 Introducing DOUBLEMINT (Byers '87) Sdlg. C49-2: Sky Hooks X Violet Classic. TB, 35", M & RE. A very pale greenish cream with green-gold hafts and pale blue-violet beards tipped greenish yellow. Has short pale violet horns on its spring blooms. What form! Big flowers that are just perfect with domed standards and super wide round flaring falls, all heavily fluted and with substance like molded plastic. A very different "green". It has 7 buds. Although the branching varies, it's usually good here. It started blooming in August last year and kept going 'til frosts stopped it in November. An excellent increaser. Should be a superb parent for top quality space agers and rebloomers in a variety of colors including violet-bearded pastels. $35.00. Moonshine Gardens.
