Stedman Buttrick's active period as a hybridizer spanned the period from
about 1950 to the mid-60's (he died in 1968). He did not make a very large
number of introductions, as he set quite high standards for himself. CUP
RACE, of course, was his most famous introduction. The only other one I
have ever grown was TIDELANDS, a medium blue, introduced in 1962.
