I, too, am quite taken with this one.  I love the colors, and those of its daddy.
Incidentally, even though SILVERADO is notorious in its suppression of rebloom, there are other reblooming descendants.  Suttons have RETURN OF INNOCENCE, a very wide, ruffled white with an elaborate flounce as it grows in California.  What it would look like in TN, KY or NC remains to be seen.  The photo of it is gorgeous.
SILVERADO has awesomely complex ancestry, slicing across several different lines of breeding, and it does have an awful lot of good qualities itself.  Some of its offspring are very wide hafted--CONCISE, THUNDER QUAY in particular.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to get quality like that into rebloomers?  Betty seems to have come a long way toward that goal, as have some others, Lloyd Zurgbrigg and the Suttons as some examples.
