You're right Neil.  One of KITTY KAY's parents is COMING UP ROSES. And thank you Linda for stating that FASHION STATEMENT has as one of it's parents COMING UP ROSES too. 
For me COMING UP ROSES is really struggling to survive - - (now in it's second year). The only saving factor I see for me in KITTY KAY is that SOCIAL EVENT is also in it's parentage.  SOCIAL EVENT for me is vigourous and strong/healthy.
(I haven't grown both Designing woman and Fashion Statement - so I can't compare those two.)  Good info from the two of you.

Neil responds:
I have been enjoying your photos greatly, Margie.  Thank you.  As to
FASHION STATEMENT, it performs moderately well here, and has a lovely
blossom and a superior stalk.  Of interest, I believe---if I read the
data correctly-- one of its parents crossed with one of the parents
of LOTUS LAND is the parentage of the newly introduced, lovely KITTY
KAY, suggesting this is a superior bloodline to look to for top
quality pinks and orchids with tangerine beards.  Fashion Statement
is VERY fertile, by the way.
