Apricot Jewel - 3O-O
INTERMEDIATE, Seedling #V95-239-28 = Bossa Nova x (Stylish x Sabine Hay), S. J. Vinisky, USA, 2011, Season 3
I'm excited to get this lovely INTERMEDIATE flower into the hands of exhibitors. It is a bright, hotly colored flower that can be a real jewel. The wide, overlapped perianth is true orange with a soft, smooth texture, The shallow, bowl shaped corona is deep orange and is several shades darker than the perianth. The flowers average about 68mm in diameter. Not as consistent as I'd like but it can and does produce blooms that can exude quality and compete at the highest level. The color along with the small size can stop people in their tracks. Much commented on and requested. A strong grower.

Brooke Ager - 2W-P
Seedling # N16-18 = [Pink Ice x (Coral Light x My Word)], Sidney DuBose, USA, 1997, 4
Named in memory of Brooke Ager, this flower is a fitting and loving tribute. Intermediate in size as it grows to 13” or so in height. The flower is just at two inches in diameter. The cup is the most stunning deep red, ‘pink’ on opening and assumes a deep reddish rose coloration at maturity. The color is intense. The perianth is flat with prominent mucro tips and carries a deep pink flush even in the heat of California. Fine for the garden, lovely in arrangements and is gaining more than its share of ribbons on the show bench. A great selection with both form, consistency, and deep, intense color. Fertile both ways. A must for breeders of miniature and small flowers as it transmits its deep color and fine form characteristics to its offspring. ‘Brooke Ager’ has been awarded accolades, rave reviews from knowledgable hybridizers, and first place ribbons around the world. It garnered a coveted Award of Merit (AM) by the RHS for its performance at the trials held at Wisley in 2004. We’ve worked hard to keep stocks equal to demand and still allow us to reduce prices. Highly recommended.

Butterfly Kiss - 2W-Y
Seedling # V89-20-14 = (Capisco x Mite), S. J. Vinisky, USA, 2005, 2-3
Beautiful and extremely prolific INTERMEDIATE daffodil from a unique, non traditional cross. Rapidly makes large, floriferous clumps in the garden. The flowers last an unusually long time. The perianth segments open cream but pass to pure white. The segments are reasonably wide with prominent mucro tips. Opening flat, the flowers show the slightest reflex just as they mature. The segments have a polished look and a distinct sheen. The funnel shaped corona is half length, evenly fluted and a soft, mid yellow. Has gotten high marks as well as many positive comments while under number. Its unique breeding background will appeal to those interested in hybridizing. Potent pollen and a modest seed setter. Recommended both for garden and show.

Cayenne - 2Y-R
Seedling # D220 = (Chianti x Resplendent), Ben Hager, USA, 2004, 2-3
Winner of Rose, White, and Gold Ribbons while under number, this is a splendid example of the late Ben Hagers wonderful eye and his commitment to petite flowers. Ben was one of the leading breeders in the Iris world. His lifelong efforts almost single-handedly revitalized the Miniature Tall Bearded and the Standard Dwarf Bearded Iris category. Ben applied this same fervor and enthusiasm to the, then, unpopular and unknown Intermediate Daffodil category. ‘Cayenne’ is a Selection of one of the few petite daffodils that flowered from the above cross. Truly jewel like in appearance it reflects Bens eye for color and his unswerving desire for consistency. A smooth flower with a velvety sheen to the perianth and a dark, striking color to the precise, bowl shaped corona. I can report that ‘Cayenne’ is a super parent. Fertile both ways and has given us Miniature Daffodils with Y-R coloration. This is a winner!

Estuary - 2W-GWW
Seedling #U-10/2 = Broomhill x Stainless, Murray Evans, USA, 1987, 3-4
This is a superb, much under rated Murray Evans flower that I hold in very high regard. From a dream cross of Murray's combining two highly awarded, top show whites. Selected by Bill Tribe and what a Selection it is. Often flawless, blindingly white flower that is medium size. Several millimeters larger than Intermediate. Notable for its exquisite texture being silken smooth with a satiny sheen. Quite prolific and consistent in the production of show flowers that can compete at the highest levels. A white that will please the most discriminating exhibitor.

Jeanie Driver - 2W-P(v)
INTERMEDIATE; V95-171-1 = Geometrics x Brooke Ager, S.J. VINISKY, USA, 2006, 3
Named to honor my dear friend, Jeanie Driver and recognizing her tremendous enthusiasm that was instrumental in creating the new Intermediate category. A gorgeous, soft, baby pink intermediate with thick substance and lovely form. May show some incurving but can be groomed flat. Strong grower and increaser with an excellent bulb. Stems are about the height of ‘Brooke Ager’ with the precise form and great substance of 'Geometrics'. A first release of a seedling raised from 'Brooke Ager' as well! Recommended as a show flower that can win its Class. Offered in two A. D. S. bulb auctions to great acclaim. Recommended.

Marionette
Marionette
Marionette - 2Y-YYO
= N. poeticus x N. asturiensis, Alec Gray, England, Pre-1946, Season 2
In the A. D. S. Classics identification. Was removed from the A. D. S. Miniatures List for being too big. It qualifies as a splendid INTERMEDIATE being about 6" tall and 56mm (2.20") in diameter for us here in Oregon. I've found it to be pollen fertile. One of the few small flowers with color. In cool, wet seasons it is touched with an orange rim. In warmer years it is solid yellow. Interesting show flower and makes a fine collection flower. Not too consistent but when it is good, it is very good. Breeders will find the parentage of great interest and potential usefulness. A MUCH under-rated and little known Alec Gray Flower.

Peachy Keen - 2W-P
Seedling #S115-2 = (N11-26 x N5-7), Sidney DuBose, USA, 2007, 3
This is such a lovely, subtle, pastel colored, INTERMEDIATE flower for exhibition. It has been a real challenge to capture the beauty of this bloom in a photograph. Our photo is good but does not capture the beauty and subtle coloration. A true large cup that is “in balance” and very symmetric. The perianth is mid-yellow and smooth with a velvety finish. The cup is a light apricot or true peach color. Ravishing and quite different. Much liked in shows, our displays and by visitors. Good grower, bloomer and a nice clumper-upper. One of Sids favorites.
