From AIS Bulletin #265 April 1987 Introducing PRONGHORN (Byers'87) Sdlg. B-18-3: Hula Moon X Song of Norway. TB, 36", ML. Pale yellow standards; white falls, yellow hafts and edges; yellow beards; pale blue horns, spoons, flounces or big double appendages rising off the same petal. You never know what kind of appendages to expect, but they're always adorned with something here and the double prongs are really fascinating. Ruffled with domed standards and flaring falls. Would have excellent form if the hafts were wider. Superb well budded stalks. Blooms and grows with verve even under the most adverse conditions. Consistently puts out a wonderful sweet perfume here. Very fertile both ways and has given some nice blues and blue-bearded pastels with appendages. $25.00. Moonshine Gardens.
