| From Melrose Gardens catalog 1976: FABLE (Hager '76) 40" Spuria Sdg. FABLE (Hager '76) 40" Spuria Sdg. S418D: Connoisseur X Red Oak. The biggest spuria we have seen in such a deep tone—violet purple. The falls and standards have good width but the six to seven inch spread of the fiower is achieved by long claws and tall standards—so it is what is called a "spidery" flower. The yellow signals are comparatively small NET 15.00.
