From AIS Bulletin #107 April 1970 Introducing WEIRDO From the cross of (Black Nite X La Negra Flor) came a mutation-very weird. I crossed it with Jungle Shadows which produced many oddities, as Jungle Shadows does. WEIRDO isn't as odd as some were, but it is a darling of inky blue with the exception of the upper one-third of the falls which are a clean, bright brown; bronze beard. IB. Size and height are in conformity. Sdlg. 79-7S4. 19" BID. $10.00. Schmelzer's Garden.
