Re: Song of Norway was Bloom Report -buds

From: "Mark, Maureen" <MARKM@tc.gc.ca>

Hi Donald,

Highly unlikely to be Song of Norway.  The buds are greyish -- definitely
not pink.  You might want to track down who donated Song of Norway so that
you can figure out what it could be.  It's happened to us a few times with
respect to auction iris so we at least had a list to work with and narrow
down the identification when it bloomed.  One year Karen (ruffled bitone
pink) turned out to be Heritage Lace (lacey yellow/white).  Another year,
Sailor (blue plicata) turned out to be Pink Pele (pink with purple spot).
Hope you can identify yours.
