Christy, that is gorgeous.
Congratulations to Walter for creating it. Makes me wish I had kept a piece back in the
greenhouse. Oh well, maybe next
very interested to see how the color spots do out of doors. Now there is a project. Grow everything considered “virused”
indoors and see if the flecking goes away <G>.

official Checklist describes this as "OGB- (Walter Moores.
1978). 16" S. pale blue, flecked olive and dark blue; F. olive,
flecked dark blue; burnt orange beard tipped white."
pampered doll has been in the greenhouse, protected from the weather,
and shows a softer color without the dark flecks. (You
might notice the anthers are missing. :-)) Except for the flecking,
it matches the description almost perfectly (greenhouse height is 18") so
it's a pretty safe bet that the streaking and spotting seen on ABs at times is
a reaction to climate and not virus.
starts are planted in the garden and should bloom next season giving an ideal
comparison of weather related color.
