Thanks, Walter, I did get WISH and MAGIC WISH last year, hoping 
they'll bloom and be useful in the project next spring.  I heard of 
SHIRLEY M. from this group and already have it on my order form from 
Riverview (whose 2001 catalog is now available -- $4.50 from them, if 
someone else wants to order it; best price I've found so far.)  It 
does have tangerine in the throat, but I've found none that don't, so 
am planning to use pinks with at least partial non-tangerine beards 
for my initial crosses, with the best pinks (in form, branching, 
etc.) I can afford..

Thanks for your input.
