BAIT AND SWITCH
(John Shooter, 2002)
38 ML Re Fr Dor. #92-672 [ROBERT OLIVER X HOBKIRK INN].
7 - 2 3/4 - 1 7/8. Diploid.
You won't be tricked by this late lovely because it will
linger in your memory for a long time. Huge blooms of bright plum magenta
with 4" centers of light green, light lemon, blue magenta, and lavender
pink leave a lasting impression. The pattern of the flower's triangular
center begins with a very large light green throat topped by a narrow
band of light lemon which is outlined by a pencil line of blue magenta.
Just above the blue magenta is a faint watermark of lavender pink in the
center of the petals. Sepals are green cream overlaid plum magenta with
creamy yellow edges. Wine veins. Form is full, triangular with petals
that arch up (humped) and then recurve slightly and sepals that arch and
recurve and curl. Very velvety texture, heavy substance. Ruffled, crimped,
