New for me this year. Registered as a TB by Henry Danielson, '79. Genotype
may be an RB- type AB and was accepted as such by the Aril Society
International in '89.

I think it's correct, but the description doesn't quite work for me.
Described as white with a dark blue beard. The effect when blooming is a
pale lavender, even when the bloom has aged. The beard is definitely blue,
but to my eyes it's a medium blue, not dark. Close examination does say
it's white. A blue-white, but white. That's just not the effect it gives.
