Miss Atomic Bomb--Howard 2016
(The Full Monty X Neon Flamingo)
3 way branching,20 buds
Deep pink with light pink watermark and pale yellow green throat bleeding onto the sepals.
It is difficult to capture the color accurately. Melanie Mason's The Full Monty has really
thick scapes and I thought by crossing Gossard's Neon Flamingo onto it I could capture
that trait with some of the electric pink glow it has. Sometimes things work out! "Pink is
the color most often associated with love, beauty, charm, politeness, sensitivity,
tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity, and the romantic" (Wikepedia).It's hard not
too look at this bloom and feel something. Quite beautiful and a hit at the Regional the
summer of 2015.Fertile both ways but pods are not easy.
The name is from a KIllers' song........$ 95/DF
"All that I wanted was a little touch,
A little tenderness and truth, I didn't ask for much, no
Talk about being at the wrong place at the wrong time…

Making out we've got the radio on
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone"
