Comment: “This is one of my tallest and last of the TB’s. I do not agree with the color description from National. I find it to have a strange blend of creamy light yellow standards, and bright violet falls which fade to lemon on the edges with age. It has excellent substance, lasts for a few days, and is a nice sight when most other TB’s are finishing up.” – Laetitia, NJ
