Full Description

From Salina Flower Farms catalog for 1951: “Plicata in waxy heliotrope on light yellow ground.”

From Wild’s of Missouri catalog for 1954 “(Gibson 1948) A new and lovely plicata of soft apricot-yellow with rich heliotrope markings.”

From Lloyd Austin’s catalog for 1958: “Spring, summer and fall bloomer. Light pinkish mulberry and deep rose mulberry peppered on cream ground. Very large, outstanding, a wonderful dollar value. Usually starts its second bloom in August and blooms on and on until cut down by heavy frosts.”

From Walter Marx’s Gardens catalog for 1959: “(Gibson 1948) With ETHEL PECKHAM, it forms the pair that can really be relied upon for spring as well as fall blooming. The heavily marked plicata blooms in light pink to deep rose mulberry on cream ground delight all with their color, size and form.”
