From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1938: "A very tall and imposing flower in delicate cocoa-brown tones, the falls overlaid blue with flecks of golden brown. Of bold growing habit, widely branched, carrying more than a dozen blooms per stalk. Height four feet. This is one of a series of blends shown in Dr. Kleinsorge's garden last season and its introduction was strongly urged by all who saw it."
