INTERESTING INFO:
From hybridizer Keith Keppel: Sib to Haunted Heart and done in much the same manner. Basic color is smoky oyster white, with faint hints of pink showing in the standards. Light pinkish tan haft lining extends outward as faint veining, while the smoked shrimp beards add a touch 0f color to the strongly ruffled, lightly iaced and heavily substanced flowers. Good stalks, with three branches plus terminal, fine buds. Passes on good form to a large percentage of its seedlings.
