Full Description

TB 36″ ML

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1978: “This is a 7-inch flower with broad, flaring falls and domed standards. The falls are satiny white with a haft of vivid gold that continues around the petal to form a solid edge, also continuing on around the standards. The lacing is so heavy that it doubles up on itself giving the petals a rippling, horned effect.”

From long line of sdlgs. inv. Tinsel Town, Maudie Marie, Charmaine, Pink Pussycat; HM 1979.
