■(AB) 'Tantalizer'

1952, Marx

'Tantalizer' OGB (Walter Marx, R. 1952). AB, MB, 12" (30 cm), Late bloom. Standards olive yellow, feathered garnet; Falls brass yellow, feathered garnet. Yellow dwarf seedling X 'Hera'. 1952.

See below:


From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1955: TANTALIZER (Marx 1952). Each 1.00. A fascinating and bizarre little oncobred resulting from a dwarf yellow seedling crossed with the Regelio-cyclus hybrid, Hera. The entire ground color is near buff yellow with maroon purple stripes. The color pattern is quite similar to our little Chipmunk, a denizen of nearby woods. Flowers are of rounded form with slightly elongated falls. A profusion of flowers on slender 10 inch stems. Very vigorous and blooms with the latest dwarfs. Dwarf oncobred.
