| CANDLELIGHT BOUQUET (Framke 1961 EM. l. 44 in. (Primrose Path x Aqualettel). A real showpiece and a true beauty that lasts all through the season, this puts on a spectacular, day by day show. Very tall and with wide, rebranched branches that carry many buds, the stalks seem specially tailored to show the large, ruffled and fluted blooms to perfection. The flowers are of bright, silvery, orchid-blue with an all-over sprinkle of silver gilt that seems embedded in the thick translucent petals. A vivid Geranium red beard seems to act almost like a real flame, lighting up each sparkling fleck of gilt in every ruffle. This is one you are sure to like. Not a fast increaser but produces an average of three huge, hardy rhizomes. No. 62-133A ..... 30.00. [Fleur de Lis Catalog, 1965].
