| From AIS Bulletin #213 April 1974 Introducing GOLDEN ELEGANCE (Sdlg. 69-14A). TB, 36", Mid-Late. (Noble Guest X Debbie Rairdon). Stiffly held standards are a clean Buttercup Yellow (Wilson 5/1). Wide falls are a bright White cleanly edged Buttercup Yellow with a matching beard. Smooth-textured blooms are large and ruffled. Excellent branching, nine buds ideally spaced on sturdy stalk. Heavy substance insures long-lasting blooms in adverse weather. Attracted much attention in the Roderick garden during Region 18 Spring Tour. Was persuaded to introduce a year earlier than originally planned, so will be in short supply. A sure sell-out, so order early. HC '73. Net $25.00. Marvin Olson.
