TB: Light Fantastic

Will, I don't believe I have ever seen a photo of LIGHT FANTASTIC.  It's a seedling of WINTER OLYMPICS but quite distinct from it.  It's more or less white, ruffled, lots of buds and branches, fairly tall, strong stalks.  It was introduced in 1968 and took an HM the following year. It was far ahead of its time in quality. 
Opal described it as pale ivory with a touch of blue in the standards and beards.  The buds "appear to have been cut with pinking shears" she adds.
I believe Riverview has it.
