| OUTREACH (J. Nelson '71) Each $20.00 This golden yellow and white bears so much color similarity to last year's introduction 'Fairlight' from this same hybridizer, that readers may wonder why this one is justified. Well, first of all Outreach is among the first of the giant bearded to come into flower, and while the broad falls are wavy, neither they nor the standards are fringed with lace, as is the very late 'Fairlight'. Although blooming early the stems carry so many big blossoms that they continue past mid-season. Those who see each of these fine varieties will want them both! Height 36 inches. [Cooley's 1971]
