From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1939: " "Because it is so neat" — pure golden yellow, including the beard. A perfectly fashioned flower of medium size and height, with a mass of bloom and many branches. The tendency among breeders has been toward giant size and great height, but GOLDEN SLIPPERS is a garden flower, born to spill its myriads of clean cut daffodil yellow blossoms about in rank profusion. Increases rapidly. Each $3.00; 3 for $8.00."
