From Cordon Bleu Farms catalog, 1977: MARIPOSA TARDE (Eleanor McCown 1977) The name is Spanish for late butterfly. It does bloom in the late season, but the form is much too full and compact to evoke the imagery of a butterfly. Rich cream standards and vivid yellow falls with a wide creamy white border. Elixir X Fairfield. $15.00.
