| From Cooley's Gardens Catalog 1961: COPPER HALO (Gibson, '58) Each $7.50. Here we have a new plicata from the originator of the popular but still scarce 'Taholah'. Illustrated on pages 57 and 46, it is a creamy white or ivory ground in both standards and falls, heavily peppered and stitched with rosy copper. Broad petals, graceful ruffling and thick texture mark this strain and set a new standard for plicata types. Copper Halo is a lively color pattern which blends well in almost any garden scheme. Very late. 34-36 inches in height. HM AIS, 1958.
