| From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1958: NONA (Roy Davidson) 38" (Char Maize X Cloveley). This is probably the cleanest green yellow we have seen. The form is taken from the parent Char Maize and is as full, but more tailored and with a waxier substance. The flower has a silken sheen and the green tint is quite distinct. Not only a color novelty, but a very fine iris. Again we are happy to be cointroducing NONA with its originator, Roy Davidson. $25.00
