*FUNKY BUSINESS (2010 intro registered in 2009) 29" M SEV TET EMO 5½-6" Trumpety deep yellow with maroon eye. Displays midrib cresting on 1, 2 or all 3 petals 75% of the time, some years 100% and there's a green throat down in there. Pod fertile, it might be useful in breeding Midrib Cristate (crested) sculpted forms or doubles, but I've kept it around mostly 'cause it's fun to check to see what it's doing each day. Has pale pollen that is very difficult to use but has produced a few seeds. Makes medium sized fans, and scapes average 2 laterals with 24 buds. First bloomed in 2003, it definitely stood out from all its pinkish, skinnyish siblings.
