    Tracing the ancestry of PINK FANFARE is complicated by uncertainties in Oscie's mind as he made entries in his garden book. For example, he uses the code HLW inexplicably for ATLANTA ANTIQUE SATIN in 1981, the year before it was registered with AHS. It's right there in the notebook.

    ((Lahaina x Atlanta Antique Satin) x Kimmswick) X Sedalia.

    Sedalia = (Kanani? x (? x My Belle)) X "S-12"
    S-12 was one of a set of Edna Spalding seedlings he bought in her garden and converted.

    Oscie was a big fan of Spalding color. When talking about PINK FANFARE he attributed its quality of color to the Spalding seedling behind Sedalia.
