AMETHYST FLOUNCES (Knopf) is another beauty. It has these rosebud standards and pert falls—what heavenly form and color. It just says 'Here I am and I know you admire me!' It has perfect branching. The buds are so deep in color that I was surprised at the pastel color of the bloom. Again, it has the perfect name.
