BY DESIGN (F. Kerr 2005) Sdlg. 98-054D 35" M. (Romantic Evening X Gallant Theme).

The standards and style arms are blue white. The falls are near blue black with a narrow lighter carona edge. There is a strong white ray pattern beside the beard which is tangerine red. Excellent grower and increaser with two branches, a spur and a terminal with seven to eight buds. HM 2007 $5.00
