Christy asked:

<<  I've been trying to come up with a short list of VERY tall =
 TBs.......color isn't really important, nor is form. In fact, I'd prefer =
 something older.
 Any suggestions?>>

Well....here's a start...

Truly Fair (Plough, 1956) 47" Bright pink
Victorian Veil (Craig, 1950) 43"  Rose plicata
Sunset Blaze (Kleinsorge, 1948) 42" golden flame
Frosty (Craig, 1950) 44" white- violet plicata
Pledge Allegiance (Schreiner, 1984) 49" medium blue
Commander-in-Chief (Schreiner, 1988) 42" white w/yellow shoulders
Orchid and Flame (Craig, 1954) 44"hyacinth blue
Autumn Clouds (Hager, 1990) 45" Blue-white
Belvi Queen (Jensen, 1976) 43" yellow and cinnamon
Trumpet Concerto (Zurbrigg, 1981) 42" Light blue violet
Silver Tower (Mitchell, 1950) 49" Ice blue

And although Giant Rose, ( Schreiners, 1959) is only registered at 40," the
blooms are said to be eleven and a half inches tall, which is getting fairly
..large. I also recall Joan Roberts listing one at Friendship Gardens a
couple of years ago that was registered at 50" but I cannot for the life of me
remember the name.
