From AIS Bulletin #257 April 1985 Introducing WESTAR (Bennett C. Jones) SDB, 12'l, M. The first of its kind! A glistening pure white with large, fuzzy, medium light blue beards. Standards are firmly held but not tightly closed. Falls are horizontal, which add to the drama of the contrasting beards. This breakthrough is named for the satellite our astronauts recently rescued from space. Sdlg. 359-6: (Kentucky Bluegrass x Cotton Blossom) X ({Gingerbread Man x Meadow Moss) x (Meadow Moss x Kentucky Bluegrass)). $7.50. Contemporary Gardens.
