| From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing MISS VENUS. In the Space-Age contest, this candidate counts on winning by winsome coyness, or perhaps sheer erotic pulchritude. A self of very pale, but quite telling pink, even to the widely-expanded flounces which rise above the very flaring falls. Several purists have "fallen to her charms." (I well remember the first sight of her!) Only moderately wide at the "waist," both falls and flounces expand widely, so the effect is opulent. Unlike many Spaceager's, these are good growers here, and the branching and triple budding, along with late season, make them very valuable in extending the season in spring. (No remontancy in these lines.) Fertility unbounded. (Sdlg. 68-118B-A). $60.00. Avonbank Iris Gardens.
