What came first, the lavender or the light green, I blush to think of it. “Mint Blush” is blushed to the edges with pale lavender, a light creamy green throughout the floret, with medium lavender veining and darts on the 5 lower petals. A 3 ¼ inch floret, 22 total buds, with 8 open and 3 in color, flower head of 25 inches, and total field height of 53 inches. “Mint Blush” is a cool fresh color.

My first thought when I saw this little glad in the trials was, “This Glad’s on fire!” Not only hot, but a swirling hot orange, with yellow in varying amounts near the petal tips, and red darts on 5 petals. Florets 3 ¼ inches, triangular, ruffled, in zigzag placement. 20 total buds, 7 open and 4 in color, 24 inch heads, and 52 inch field height. An All America Select winner form last summer’s trial gardens. Turn up the heat, “Pyro” is here!

“The Butler Did It,” using this charming deep salmon with a large cream center, reminiscent of a bulls-eye! The deeper reddish salmon flecks displaying in the salmon color help to mystify the event. 5 inch round plain florets, 22 total buds, 8 open, 6 in color, informal placement, with 26 inch heads, 54 inch field height. It’s definitely the floret shape and bulls-eye effect that make this glad. A Carl Fischer Award winning design was created by our friend Jim Butler at a MN State Glad Show, New Ulm. Mystery solved.
