From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing THEATRE ARTS (Spence '70). Midseason, 36", T.B. 62-2-4E: (Miss Indiana x Rippling Waters) x Rippling Waters. Lovely neglecta with the much-wanted tangerine beard. Standards are violet-blue with a deeper infusion at the base; falls medium violet-blue, wide, flaring and ruffled. This will breed the blue amoenas and neglectas with red and tangerine beards that we are looking for. A great advance in this class and a fine flower in its own right. Fine stalk with three branches and terminal. Seedling #64-33-7A. H.C. 1969. NET $25.00. Herbert Spence. Co-introduced with Tell's Garden.
