From Lloyd Austin’s catalog for 1963: “Starts second bloom in early Sept.; continues all thru Sept. & Oct. First bloomed at only 9 months from seed. Increased to 9 rhizomes by second fall & every one bloomed in Sept. Stalks exceptionally heavily branched, with up to 20 delectable golden flowers per stalk. Standards bright, light yellow; falls deep yellow, burnished with soft crimson, giving an attraction bronzy effect. Pollen plentiful.
