You're right Neil. One of KITTY KAY's parents is COMING UP ROSES.
And thank you Linda for stating that FASHION STATEMENT has as one of it's
parents COMING UP ROSES too.
For me COMING UP ROSES is really struggling to survive - - (now in
it's second year). The only saving factor I see for me in KITTY KAY is that SOCIAL EVENT is also in it's parentage.
SOCIAL EVENT for me is
vigourous and strong/healthy.
(I haven't grown both Designing
woman and Fashion Statement - so I can't
compare those two.) Good info from the two of you.

I have been enjoying your photos greatly, Margie. Thank
you. As to
FASHION STATEMENT, it performs moderately well here, and
has a lovely
blossom and a superior stalk. Of interest, I
believe---if I read the
data correctly-- one of its parents crossed with
one of the parents
of LOTUS LAND is the parentage of the newly introduced,
KAY, suggesting this is a superior bloodline to look to for
quality pinks and orchids with tangerine beards. Fashion
is VERY fertile, by the way.
