See below:



From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog, 1967: GINGERBREAD CASTLE (Tompkins 1967) M.VL. 40 in. (Donnybrook x Brass Accents). A sister to Starburst this is just as large, perhaps a bit larger, with broader petals and it has the same beautiful flaring, ruffled form and sleek, clean, glossy finish. When it comes to color, instead of being the brilliant red of its sister this is a complete self of glossy Gingerbread brown, beautifully rich and compelling. Tall,strong, widely branched stalks show off the huge flowers to perfection. Both this and Starburst are proving to be wonderful parents forred, blends and browns. Net $25.00
