Asked for and received permission from Rick Tasco to start a thread for their 2019 introductions as they are posted on Superstition's Facebook page. Here is the first of three they have given us so far:

"Today we start unveiling our 2019 Introductions. We'll start with what may sound like your favorite Chinese Buffet--LUCKY DRAGON (Tasco 2019) 23", ML. AM, OGB-, 1/4 aril. Parentage is Feel The Heat X Silent Sentry. Seedling number was 15-AM-03-03. Has many triple bud terminals, which is virtually unheard of arilbreds. Because of that it can have up to 5 buds while most arilbreds only have 2 or 3. Bright colors with the feathering contrasting signal and the violet tipped beards. A vigorous grower here. We hope you'll like it as much as we do. Another intro tomorrow, stay tuned."

"VIOLET STORM (Tasco 2019) AM, OGB-, 1/4 aril, 22", EM/RE, REBLOOMER!!! Parentage is Byzantine Ruby X Replicator. Not very many reblooming quarterbreds, but this one reblooms very well for us in our zone 8 climate. Seedling number was 14-AM-12-24-RE. The 1/2 aril OGB's start tomorrow, we'll have 3 of them in 2019."

"Today we start with the OGB (1/2) arilbreds. This is GLOW OF LOVE (Tasco 2019), OGB (1/2 aril), 35", M. Seedling number was 14-AB-13-03. Parentage is (New Vision sib) x (Bagdad's Folly x Energizer) X Arabian Archer. We love the "glow" that radiates out from the almost black signal and fills most of the falls except for the edges. Plus that was the name of an old song we liked, so happy match. Nice soft colors that are eye pleasing. Plus another one of those "narrowing to a point" beards. At times can have an additional branch (2nd) and an additional bud (4th)."

"VIVID DREAM (Tasco 2019) AB, OGB (1/2 aril), 36", ML. Parentage is Enchanter's Spell X Arabian Archer. Seedling number was 14-AB-07-04. Bold saturated colors, accentuated by the golden yellow flecks showing up near the signal. Sometimes a 2nd branch and a 4th bud and another "narrowing" beard, just not as sharp as some others. 5th and last arilbred tomorrow, then we start on Monday with the 5 tall beardeds."

I wonder how long they had to wait for them from seed to bloom.

"ON THE WEB (Tasco 2019) AB/OGB, 1/2 aril, 27", L. Parentage is Alakazam X Energizer. Getting ever closer to my arilbred breeding goal of overall veining with a large signal. Onco form and blooms late in the arilbred blooming season. You'll like having this in bloom when most of your arilbreds have finished blooming. We think the name we chose matches the veining concept. This is our 5th and final arilbred intro for 2019, tomorrow (Monday) we start unveiling our 5 tall bearded intros."

"Today we'll start with our 2019 tall bearded intros. This is BOUNDLESS BEAUTY (Tasco 2019) TB, 37", M. Parentage is (GypsyLord x Bushwhacked) x (Gypsy Lord x Jazz Band) X Engagement Ring. Diamond dusted petals on show stalks that average 7-to-10 buds, strong healthy grower here. Nice contrast between the coral pink standards and the wide cyclamen purple fall band with the burnt tangerine beard. Stay tuned, 4 more TBs to show."

"Today's TB is GARDEN DEBUTANTE (Tasco 2019), 38", L. Parentage is Smoky Shadows X Iconic. Seedling number was 11-TB-16-34. Heavily ruffled and lighty laced flowers with a sweet fragrance. Show stalks have 8 to 11 buds with medium purple based foliage. Standards are a shiny dark burgundy while the falls are a matte finish burgundy black. Smoky Shadows is producing many nice flowers for us in this color range."
