ROCKABILLY REBEL - Mick Morry 2013 Introduction

-Tetraploid-
(ElegantCandy x Tetra Spirit World)-Dormant, 4 inch flowers, 28 inch
scape, 4-5 way branching, 20-24 buds per scape, Mid season.
Rockabilly Rebel is a happy little flower. It increases fast and has
an excellent bud count and branching and in a mass planting its dayglo
colour puts on quite a display as we have seen both at our place here
in Canada and also down south at Karen and Steve Newman's place in
Tennessee. Its rich clean vibrant colour brightens up any garden.


When I visited Karen and Steve several years ago Steve told me
Rockabilly Rebel was one of his favourite flowers he had seen bloom
all that season. Rockabilly Rebel is named after a song by the
Rockabilly group Matchbox. I grew up listening to Rockabilly, Punk,
Ska, Heavy Metal, and many other alternative styles of music in
addition to the great pop and top 40's coming out of the 1970's, and
80's too. It was an exciting time to be alive and young with so many
amazing groups and singers putting out hit after hit. The 1950's
until the early 1990's were rich with Rockabilly and Psychobilly
music, and it is a style of music that helped shape modern Rock . It
is music that has stood the test of time-- as I am seeing the kids
nowadays listen to music my generation grew up listening to. It is
the same for all of us...we listen to what our parents and the
generation before us listened to, and it helps shape what music we
listen to later in life.
