| From AIS Bulletin #253 April 1984 Introducing ROYAL SPARKS-Big, fat, dazzling white beards are the sparks that fly from this rich, velvety royal purple standard dwarf. Royal also because nothing in the Royal Horticulture Society's charts comes close enough to the brightness of this purple to even mention on the registration papers. Standards a pinch lighter. Very round petals give excellent form. Exceptional suhstance and vigor. 3 buds on this 10-1/2" Starry Eyed child. $10.00. Gaddies' Gardens.
