■(TB) 'Precious'

1945, Mitchell

'Precious' (Sydney B. Mitchell, R. 1945). TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-Y5M. Seedling# plicata x plicata.

See below:


From Carl Salbach catalog 1946: PRECIOUS. $8.00. A fine tall new type plicata perhaps best described in general effect pale apricot. We suggest the name of "fancy" for this new type as it is appearing as a new pattern in plicata breeding. The whole flower is suffused with a superimposed color instead of this being confined to marginal stippling. Standards and falls ofwell-rounded form.
