Kelly  --  That's an unusual color combination, especially among IBs.  Attractive.  Congratulations!  --  Griff

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!)

-5 increases

 

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.  Thanks!

 

Botanically,
