Full Description

TB 38″ R1L

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1958: “A tall, stately rose colored flower with tawny russet hafts. The beard is bronze-orange. The falls flare widely and are gracefully ruffled and curled at the margins. Flowers are large and placement along the sturdy, well branched stems is ideal.”

(Alline Rogers X Love Light).

Note: Likely extinct, as it has not been heard of in many, many years.
