From AIS Bulletin #241 April 1981 Introducing SNOW BEACON (Helsley '81). TB, M, 36". $25.00. A ruffled, wide-petaled white sounds ordinary until you add a really huge yellow-orange beard. The same beard color spills out on the hafts like a bright light shining down on the snow below. Vigorous. 6 buds. Launching Pad x Arctic Dawn. Sdlg. 5W-CH-77. Calvin Helsley.
