HIGH ESTEEM (Tompkins '66) E. VL. 44 in. High Note x Apple Valley. A huge, beautifully formed flower with broad ruffled petals of very heavy substance and a lustrously rich finish, accented by a heavy Rose coral beard; our cover picture should well describe this vivid new pink. A good grower, this has tall, excellently branched stalks that carry many buds and show each lovely flower to perfection. Having seen it here and bloomed it in England, Mr. Randall writes us that it is the best he has seen in this class. No. 62-37E. Net 35.00. [Fleur De Lis Gardens, Canby, Oregon, Catalog, 1966]
