OB- type AB, historic.  Kleinsorge '37.  It's not quite this blue as the
overall look has more lavender to it, but I was struck by the amount of true
blue bleeding in the color and this matches that very well.  This is a big,
showy bloom.  I wasn't quite expecting that from the vintage. 

This one prompted a search of my photo archives but, sadly, I didn't find a picture of the ORMOHR we once grew here in the Mesilla Valley.  I recall that its form and substance was superior to that of the TBs of its time, but certainly not this wide.  From just this shot, I'd guess it's a CAPITOLA offspring from the '50s to the '70s.

Even if you can't get another photo, please watch the form as the flower matures and let us know what you think.
