From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2007: CLEAR CHOICE - TB, 32" (81 cm), Very Early. Glaciatas with acceptable plant habits have been hard to come by. CLEAR CHOICE overcomes these problems and is beautiful too. Pink standards blend to peach margins. Falls are the same with paler pink patches around light creamy tangerine beards. White center stripes descend from the beards. Styles are darker peach-apricot. With all the rain last year and the year before, CLEAR CHOICE proved to be very rot resistant. Hopefully it will pass this on to its offspring. Sdlg. TW109A: Lonely Hearts X (Fancy Dress x Progressive Attitude) 2 BONUS.
