Jerry S. asks what I might know of Lemon Chiffon--that can be summarized pretty quickly! We visited Reaths in 1980 and saw the opened maiden flower on the young seedling, it was yellow and double then. I saw it again on the show table at the 2001 APS exhibition in Hamilton, Ontario, a very fine flower of considerable size. In flower anatomy I thought it a bomb class flower. You probably know that it produced the champion flower at the 2000 APS show. Scott writes glowingly of its fertility and quality of its progeny. I would expect the fertility, inasmuch as it is attributed to a Salmon Dream seed and pollen of a seedling from Cream Delight x Moonrise, all quite fertile in my experience. Don
