Blyth), AMBER SNOW, and an unknown that has that "Blyth look", which I
think may be BEACH GIRL. The outstanding interactor with my recessives
has been CHINESE TREASURE, producing several amoenas with full-velvet
falls, whereas it, itself, has falls which are not velvet. CHAMPAGNE
ELEGANCE has worked better with dominant amoenas, but I may not have
given it sufficient chance yet with the recessives. No red beards from
CHINESE TREASURE yet, but the yellow beards are golden and appropriate.

I remember that Clarence, last January or so, remarked that reducing or
making pleasing the haft marks in recessive amoenas was a worthwhile
goal.  Several of these seedlings have attained that. I think I have at
least one introducer among them.
