From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1957: CAROLINE JANE (De Forest 1951) Each 5.OO. If you are looking for a new and different blue-dotted plicata, this is the answer. The enormous flowers are carried on fine 38 inch stems. The white ground color glistens like snow and the violet-blue markings are clean. The distinct beautifully modeled standards form a lovely crown for an excellent flower. HM 1951.
