Betty Nesmith. This tall, soft primrose flower with its flaring falls and gleaming golden beard is more beautiful the second day of its life than when just out, but it seems a little slow in becoming established, but it is worth waiting for. [Mrs. Herman E. Lewis, "Varietal Notes 1938", A.I.S. Bulletin 72 (January 1939): 10.]
