*BEACON AT DUSK -- [(Bohemia After Dark) (Sultry Smile x Forbidden Desires)] (Didgeridoo x Clothed in Glory) Sev. 5.5” fl. 24” sc. M. 20 buds.  Few hybridizers in recent years have worked more heavily with purples than I have.  With a seedling field full of purples one gains a respect for not only flower form, but for rich clear colors.  While each of my purple introductions have their own personality, Beacon At Dusk is outstanding for its clear “Crayola” purple color.  The flowers are intensely saturated, with extremely rich,  Crayola violet to dark royal purple blooms.  They are also beautifully ruffled, with large looping gold edges.  The flowers also have a precise lighter watermark surrounding a green throat.  A must for hybridizers working toward clarity and intensity of color in purples.
