Re: TB: Zebra and striped foliage

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

Others are:

Striped Jade (Weiler 1984) TB 35" Light yellow flowers and ivory and white
variegated foliage.

Striped Moonbeam (D. Shepard 1990) AB 18" Gray-green foliage, white
variegation, flowers lemon yellow, pencil-line cream striping.  Rebloom in
zone 4.

Zebra Halo (Kasperek 1997) TB 36" Heavily laced, warm creamy yellow
standards and falls are edged aureolin yellow.  Variegated show stalks.
Orange beards tipped white.  5 buds.

Zebra Blush (Kasperek 1995) TB 34" Dark green, red-purple based fans,
streaked and marbled white.  Striped stalks, flowers with light yellow
standards and light rose flaring falls.  Lavender beards.  HM97.

The Kaspareks are working on getting variegated flowers on variegated
foliage.  We'll probably see more variegated foliage plants in the coming
years.  Bud count is currently the challenge.

These are all listed in the Zebra Gardens catalogue.
