From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2006: CAMEO APPEARANCE - TB, 40" (102 cm), Midseason-Late. Her entrance may not be grand but her impact while on stage is enduring. Each flower is clasically shaped. Standards are heavily ruffled and laced; falls broad and flat, edged in crinkly lace. Standards are dark blue-violet at base and rib diffusing to smooth pearl gray margins. Pale grayish pink falls darken slightly toward edges and are interestingly texture veined silvery gray. Beards are a unique streaked medley of peach, tangerine, and white. Cameo Appearance is subtly colored but entrancingly beautiful. Super strong growth as would be expected of these parents. Stalks have 3 branches and 6-7 buds. Sdlg. J38F: Faberge X Fogbound. $50.00.
