Full Description

TB 35″ M

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1961: “A Molasses and honey blended plicata of great size and excellent branching, embracing the quality of Taholah, one of its parents, in a taller and flashing combination of colors. The illustration on page 47 shows what to expect… a giant Firecracker, deeper, richer and with twice the stem of this fine old favorite.”

Seedling of Taholah, HM 1960.

From Fleur de Lis Catalog 1965 ” ( Probably from Taholah). Described by the introducer as a brighter Firecracker. However, as we saw it, the colors were cream white with yellow tan markings and it seems to be pictures that way HM1960 2.50.”
