See below:


From Mid-America Garden catalog, 1989: TU TU TURQUOISE - SOB, 10"(25cm), Midseason & variable rebloom summer & fall. I had decided not to introduce this one because the standards were a bit informal, but this cutie decided it would strut its stuff for convention goers who rewarded it with an H C. It bloomed again the first of November. Standards are white tinted turquoise. Falls are wide and the same color as the standards but with a deep, intense turquoise spot. The turquoise spot of Indian Jewel has always fascinated me and this is the 3rd generation of work to get that spot on a quality flower. Sdlg. 86298AR: B80-18: (Indian Jewel X Blue Pools) X 83149B: ((Cindy Mitchell X Velvet Pride) X Joyous Isle). HC 1988. $10.00.
