Somebody To Love
70.00 70.00 70.0 USD
SOMEBODY TO LOVE (Thomas Johnson ’22) TB Late 34” (86cm) Sweet fragrance. Bluish pink standards and edge on icy blue white falls. Big, bushy, frosted light blue beards add to the attraction. Nice wide form on heavily ruffled and ever so slightly laced flowers. The coloring is somewhat similar to last year’s introduction, Eyes Of An Angel. Someone To Love is more of a blue pink in color and the beards are larger. They are definitely different in the garden and have different parental heritage. Both are a great advancement in the blue bearded pink breeding lines. Sdlg TJ135A: TD10C: (Parisian Dawn x Material Girl) X Fashion Week sib.

SHOCKING SECRET (Thomas Johnson ’22) TB Late 37” (94cm) Sweet fragrance. Shocking Secret was selected for introduction when I first laid eyes on it.

Medium orchid to lavender self with pink tones infused in the standards. Falls are the same, only with a large dark black cherry signal that surrounds the orange beards. Nicely branched and budded with good form. Yet another introduction from When Doves Cry, proving to be an excellent parent. To say it is dramatic is an understatement.
