DESERT MOON (Washington 1945) L. A tall and stately cream yellow with full ruffled flowers of extremely smooth finish, heavy substance, and exceptionally fine branching. A self with strong closely held standards, the flaring falls have short delicate reticulations of gold each side of the full yellow beard. The color is similar to that of the lovely Fairy Lustre, and as Desert Moon is late flowering it carries on this charming color throughout the season. The flowers have a delightful fragrance, the stalks are strong and sturdy with superb branching. Four branches and terminal. 42 in. $10.00. [Mrs. Thomas Nesmith, Fairmount Gardens Catalog, Lowell, Massachusetts, Introductions for 1945.]
