Full Description

TB 36″ E-L

From Mission Bell Gardens catalog for 1961: “Large flower of apricot-amber that fairly glitters. A tangerine beard adds to its charm.”

From Lloyd Austin’s catalog for 1963: “A stunning apricot-amber that fairly glitters. Has so much color, personality & charm it has been winning awards for years; was on the JC list in ’58 & reached the AM in ’59; in ’60 it was awarded the HM in Florence, Italy. A very scarce item, I suggest ordering immediately if you want this. Very wide of parts with lots of lace and ruffling. A real knockout.”

(Palomino X June’s Sister), HM 1957, AM 1959.
