The following pictures are maiden bloom on
my IB sdlg. 2-032V1. Parents are TANTRUM X BLATANT. I will be anxious to
see if it reblooms or not. BLATANT is somewhat sporadic about its rebloom
here so who knows.
Notes from the 2005 evaluation:
-17.5 inches tall
-Mustard yellow standards fading lighter to
fine green midrib
-Red falls with black sheen that fades
lighter to edge
-Bright yellow throat and haft marks extending
1/5 the length of the fall
-Beards dark gold to yellow
-Delicate, sweet fragrance
-Nice, moderate ruffling
-Good substance….doesn’t wither
in the wind (and oh have we had wind this spring!)
The pictures are a little more vivid than
the colors are in person (falls aren’t as black as photo may indicate).
It may just be my monitor.
I would enjoy any feedback anyone has.

soul." The Rev. C. S. Harrison, York NE, (1832-1919)
