Explosion In The Paint Factory--Howard 2014    

(Flying Trapeze X Webster's Aggie)
7"/38"--La,Dor, Tet
20 buds,4 branches

Yellow UFo with variable red broken overlay. A hard dormant that goes down early. Fertile both ways.
Will proliferate. I see a few blooms<5%) each year that are solid color, but even those are appealing
because of the twisting of the petals. It was pure luck to get this result, but I am thrilled to see its late
garden display. Very nice wide-spaced branching. The colors will have different patterns on different
days-see below.

The broken color trait may pass on to its seedlings. A customer sent me the image below left of a
seedling that so far has shown consistent color breaks. Click it for a larger view. The seedling to the
right is a selfed cross.

All segments will twist, spatulate and cascade depending on the day. Truly nothing else is like it out
there. It has the plant habit to go with a truly unique bloom,with the bonus of extending the season with
something you can't wait to see each day......
