From Melrose Gardens catalog for 1979: “The miscegenatious parental background results in more or less what we would expect from such a conglomeration of colors, styles and patterns. Recognizable are the blue-white standards and deep blue-violet falls in an expression of the Progenitor heritage of Apropos; the pattern of the white veining radiating from the blue-white beards is a typical non-plicata inheritance from the plicata April Cloud. It would take the black color of Storm Warning to establish the deep, full tones of the falls and Voodoo’s influence to border the falls in a paler shade. Goodness, Angel Curls and Pretty Carol reacting with Apropos sculptures the wide, ruffled and flaring form. There are those who will say that the patterning is merely roughness but many others will see it as distinctive, which allows for the allegory, “The breakers crash on the darkened shore leaving trails of light as they recede.” Two well spaced branches, side bud and terminal with double buds in all positions prove that the parental lines were genetically sound.”
