How close is
the intermediate Rare Edition to this ?
It is rare to find a bloom of Rare Edition without a a small "dart" on the falls at the end of the beard. It is consistent in producing this mark under diverse culture and climate conditions. Too, the beard color is at best a pale, pale blue I call white with yellow tints. It is a very early bloomer here.
For me your plic features are more near to those of Rare Treat than anything else growin' here. Rare Treat blooms about a month later than RE and much taller on a sparsely budded stalk.
