Full Description

TB 32″ EM

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1975: “This dusky beauty is a velvety textured, rich, red-maroon-black with ever so slight a violet cast. It is a top rung kind in this extremely limited color class. Beard is red brown,falls richer red-black with solid clear red brown hafts. A beautiful ensemble of rich muted tones.”
