'Wild Eagle' was one of the 42 sorts in the hedge, which had fallen through, but then I realized that this was the most beautiful in the whole hedge: the darkest colour, the tallest shrubs and always the most blooms! So she was added to the series and is now the most desired of all (Werner Ruf). [see also the story of the hedge in the notes to Georg Ruf].
