■(IB) 'Waxen Image'

2002, Aitken

''Waxen Image' (J. Terry Aitken, R. 2002). Seedling #92M67B. IB, Height 21" (53 cm). Late midseason bloom and occasional rebloom. Standards translucent soft yellow; falls translucent soft blue; beards white. 'Maui Surf' X 'Hey There'. Aitken 2002.

Terry says: "Marvelous proportions for an IB! The rigid petals appear to be carved from wax. Even the petal colors have the translucence of wax. Standards are a very soft translucent yellow and the falls are a very subtle translucent blue, a combination acquired from its MDB parent, 'Hey There.' Also acquired from 'Hey There' is the occasional rebloom tendency in summer. 4 or 5 buds."
