| From AIS Bulletin #256 January 1985 Introducing GRADUATION. TB, 36", EL. One of the most attractive and certainly most unusual seedlings we have bloomed. It has been the star of our garden the past 3-4 seasons. Upon opening, the flower is a heavily ruffled and fluted violet (RHS 83A) with slightly lighter stands. However, within a few hours a transition takes place! Fall centers change to near white, leaving wide, lacy, ruffled rims of original deep violet. Rusty orange beards are tipped purple. Well branched. Sib to Adventuress. #78-79D. HC '84. $30.00. Mission Bell.
