HYB: HIST: umbrata-plicata-luminata

> From: Linda Mann <lmann@icx.net>

BERTHA GERSDORFF is actually a luminata-plicata. Crossed with MOONLIT SEA
it produced the classic blue and white luminata, PRETTY PANSY.

"yellow plicata" means a plicata with yellow ground and red/purple markings
("Y8" under the old color coding system used in the 1939 and 1949 AIS
Checklists). Examples would include BALMUNG (H.P. Sass, 1939), RUTH POLLOCK
(H.P. Sas, 1939), and FIRECRACKER (D. Hall, 1943).

Perhaps the amoena you were thinking of is BRIGHT HOUR (G. Douglas, 1952),
which is often mistaken for WABASH? It is pictured on the HIPS Website.

Donald Eaves is absolutely correct about Griffin Crump being the one who
has been hybridizing with the ols recessive amoenas.
