LARRY GAULTER is another gorgeous flower I used to grow.  

When it comes to DC, I must be one of the lucky ones.  It does very well in 
this area.  I am among the favored who have taken home Queen of Show <g> with 
only one open blossom on DC.  It traditionally opens superb stalks with the 
only problem being the day of the show.  I don't refrigerate, etc.  Some 
years it will only have 4 buds, but most years it opens 3/4 of it's stalks 
with the full count of buds.  Sometimes difficult to pick the least 
weathered, since it's getting warmer by our show time, and the deep purple 
shows every spot.  Still, it rivals SONG OF NORWAY for producing show quality
