Full Description

TB 48″ M Y4L

From Stevens Bros. catalog for 1952-53: “A very distinct and novel personality is inherent in this lovely rounded flower of largest size and faultless form. A true self, the colour is quite new, and can be visualized as a warm honey-cream. A faint dusting of cinnamon brown at the hafts gives a rich, almost vibrant, note unexpected in such a light toned flower. A variety which is extremely popular, having nothing of the pallid washiness one usually associates with pale colour tonings.”
