| From AIS Bulletin #184 January 1967 Introducing DEWFUL (McGarvey '67) 40". This plant has medium blue flowers with broad falls that form a compact shallow cup which does in fact hold dew. The standards form part of the wall of the cup and are of the same color as the falls. The style arms are a very light blue which gives the flower a brightness that adds much to its garden presence. The falls carry a very attractive haft pattern which adds to the effect produced by the style arms. This plant makes a fine garden clump which because of its height and large flowers will add to the back of a mixed border. However, the real reason for introducing this particular plant is that it has proved to be an excellent breeder. Dewful is a sister seedling to Ego and is #63-4-4 (White Swirl X McG Med-BLt-b-sty). Since it is a more conventional plant than the previous introductions from Professor McGarvey the introductory price is NET $20.00. Old Brook Gardens.
