Yep, I was on the team that did that award. Not too special a flower (an nice d'al), but we felt the waters needed to be tested as to how the taxonomists would treat it. It certainly breeds differently than straight besseae and has a different growth habit. Very important horticulturally.silence882 said:Tom Kalina got the CBR on Phrag dalessandroi 'Fox Valley' in November, 2005 at the monthly judging in Chicago. It was validated by Dodson.
