Full Description

TB 38″ M

From Keith Keppel’s catalog for 1980: “Tall, well branched, spectacular variegata. Standards tawny amber-yellow, falls glossy maroon red. Brass yellow beards. Smooth coloration, smooth hafts. Lightly ruffled and waved. That’s show biz!”

From Melrose Gardens catalog for 1985: “Royal robes of deep velvet maroon and a gleaming gold crown on top, bedeck this strutting thespian. Noble stem and foliage but a plant that strides only slowly into the future.”
