From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog, 1967: PALO DUROS (Tompkins 1967) M.VL. 36 in. ((Mile Post x Checkmate) x Comanchero sib.)) x Tonalea. A gigantic red that carries the brilliance of Mile Post and Checkmate and the velvety looking but glossy texture and finish of Comanchero with the enormous size of Tonalea added as an extra bonus. In color it is a self of dark but brilliantly glowing Carmine red, a color that in this case is even heightened by the form for its wide round falls are held stiffly horizontal and seem to actually gather and reflect light in a bright red velvety sheen. In spite of their large size and long lasting qualities the flowers do not blacken or burn. Stalks are strong and very well branched.Net $25.00
