From Lloyd  Austin’s Rainbow Offerings 1954  “A color break from all predecessors that I want to bring to your special attention. Imagine the novelty of a trim pure white flower with spreading horizontal falls having a half inch patch of almost unbelievable bright medium green at the end of the beard.Holds untold possibilities for breeders desirous of increasing the amount of green.”
