    This is a first bloomer. No show stopper but adds interest to the GH.

    'Color Magic' X 'Atticus'

    Good question Ed but I don't know the answer. I really haven't followed Frank Smith's roth breeding.

    I haven't seen Atticus Justin. So what do you see that suggests Atticus?
    The overall flower is nice Eron, including the dorsal. It's just needs to be beefier and more color to the petals. More red in the pouch extending up to the rim would of been nice too.

    It does have a nice clean dorsal and straight petals, but I can't quite point my finger at what is missing. I don't think the petals are too short, maybe they angle down a few degrees too much. What is the spread of the flower? Mike

    Hey, I love big, red noses and the dorsal is attractive as well.
