Full Description

Oncobred, 16″

From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog for 1960: “A novel hybrid of silver blue, overtoned gray and heavily veined and striped deep violet. Vigorous.”

From Lloyd Austin’s catalog for 1963: “A true oncobred; has given outstanding performance as a fall bloomer. Reported from North Carolina as flowering thru Oct. & Nov. An unusual fancy plicata in silvery blue-grey, with falls heavily striped and veined in deep violet, like markings on an exotic butterfly. Hardy & vigorous.”
