| From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: CROWN POINT (Tompkins '58) ML-38". A remarkable plicata. Broad snowy-white petals are pure & clean, untouched by any color other than the clear sky-blue of a broad border of stitching, a contrast sharpened by a full, quite unusual white beard, set against blue stitching of broad ruffled haft. Hardy. A fast increaser, & a prolific bloomer. Lela Dixon X Dotted Swiss. Regularly $6.00; on $15 order 2 for $4.80; on $25 order 3 for $3.95.
