HYB: We have horns!
Ta Da! Announcing my very first seedling TB with horns--I was beginning to
think it would never happen. This is from a cross of BATMAN X THORNBIRD,
which last year only bloomed a gangly purple hornless thing (ugh). The new
one really looks like a child of THORNBIRD, with long fuzzy purple horns
with petaloids. Too bad the standards, which are small and open, are sort
of a dead mushroom color. The falls are washed with purple, and are
absolutely horizontal, and the style arms are a nice golden tan. Not
something anybody would want to register, but interesting.
Now if I would just get my nice blue horned TB from DEITY X PACIFIC GROVE,
I'd be happy.

Wonder what the judges would think of this ugly duckling if I can get it to
the show on Saturday?
