Full Description

TB, 36″ (91 cm), Midseason bloom.
From Cooley’s Gardens 1967 Catalog: Although this would be classed as a plicata it really caries but a minimum of dots or etchings, mostly near the center and on the hafts. The color is less buff or brownish than our illustration and inclines more to a chartreuse or champagne shade. Very large,slightly spreading with extra broad falls and superb branching.”
