This looks like a flower that was before its
time. Monty Byers crossed it with SKY HOOKS to produce SYLVAN, a pretty
flower, in 1989, but it doesn't appear to have been taken any further.
Looks to me like some good genes either weren't exploited or may have
been too hard to work with. -- Griff

Got a request for this one off list. Mr. Loïc wanted a photo of
it. I did make some crosses with it and some may bloom next year. I don't
plan on using it again. Was a decent grower.
