From AIS Bulletin #213 April 1974 Introducing WEE BEE: SDB, 10", ML. A real charmer, kissed by bees and butterflies alike. This little beauty is daintily fluted with closed standards and flaring falls. S. yellow (llA) with orange base; F. yellow (lIB) with hafts and mini border of yellow-orange (17A). The beard is violet-blue (91A) at base, hairs tipped orange. Three buds that open into small flowers which are in perfect proportion to the foliage. An excellent bloomer--a gay springtime greeting! (Zing sdlg. x sib). #L5-3-6. $5.00. Z. G. Benson.
