From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1956: HAPPY HEART (Tompkins 1953) ML. 40 in. (Easter Gold x Ola Kala) x (Cape Bon x Seashell). A rich golden yellow as deep in color as any we have seen, this is a rapid grower and a profuse bloomer. The flowers are very large with broad ruffled petals and a rich velvety finish. Standards are well domed and the falls are just flaring enough to give good form to so much ruffling. A fine parent for blends, reds, pinks and yellows. 3.50.
