From AIS Bulletin #141, April 1956. Introducing DREAM DUST is a luscious deep pink with gold at the haft, and base of the falls which lights up the center of the flower as though it contained a miniature candle. The beard is tangerine. This is a large round flower of Dreamcastle form. The height is a bare 28" and its branching is poor. It is being introduced because of the unusual beauty of its glowing blossom, because it is a good foreground type and because it is producing good seedlings, many of which retain the glowing effect in their centers. Sdlg #5214 $10.00. Charles Branch.
