Full Description

TB 40″ ML

From Lloyd Austin’s Rainbow Gardens catalog for: “Brightest of my fuchsia colored pinks of extra large size. Flowers copiously formed. Standard starched, meeting, having an embossed pebbled effect around edges. Might be called a very much improved FUCHSIA, with a much smoother brighter flower and a redder beard. Whereas FUCHSIA is unusually only 24″ to 30″ high, this new one is up to 42″, makes a much brighter display. Plenty of pollen for hybridizing.”
