Here they come... Those Beautiful Girls! Yes Follies fans the next few posts will highlight the the other new cultivars from Mid-America.
First a median. This IB has "upright grape juice purple standards reveal red plum styles. Very round, palest pink white falls have dark red purple hafts changing to grape juice purple plicata bands. Short purple veins and sanding flank mid burnt orange beards ending in violet. Showy clumps are filled with stalks having 2 branches and 5 buds." Or so it will soon in my garden!

"Standards are white almost completely sanded and washed deep lilac-rose except in their centers" on Ballet Performance. "Styles are honey with buff-pink crests. Wide stark white falls have narrow lilac-rose plicata bands with paler dotting inside them and darker hafts. Beards are tangerine over a white base."

Then there's Satin and Lace: "Orangey peach standards top slightly lighter falls. Darker style arms peer from between ruffled and domed standards. Soft tangerine beards are the perfect accompaniment."
