From Mid-America Garden catalog, 1987: STARDATE - SOB, 11" (28cm), Midseason. Here's a true gem about as blue as the sky. Standards are clear medium blue and falls slightly darker with a deeper blue spot. The form is round and perky with pretty little ruffles to jazz it up a bit. Beards are blue tipped with orange gold. Should breed orange beards eventually. Tends to bloom a bit heavy because of its Dixie Pixie heritage. Sdlg. 84273C: (Ice Chalet X Dixie Pixie) X C. Palmer 8134. SEE PHOTO. $10.00.
