| From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing PURPLE POMP (Fothergill) #66/53. ML. 44". (Sdlg. involving Sable, Blue Ensign, Bright Melody, Sulgrave, Windsor, Violet Hills) x sdlg. involving Sequatchie, Blood Carnelian, Mexican Magic, Sulgrave, Windsor, Christabel, etc.). Royally bred. A rich royal purple self with glowing undertones of amaranth. A tailored flower of excellent form and medium width. When established will show 4 or more branches, and I have counted 7 buds on the rebranched lower branch and a total of 21 flowers per stalk. A vigorous, healthy grower, with excellent rhizones and strong purple-based foliage. Will undoubtedly be useful to breed branching and very rich colors without haft markings, since it is absolutely smooth. A good mate for Gala Madrid, Martel, Lilac Rose, Caliente. Co-released with Mission Bell Gardens. Net $25.00. Tell's Gardens.
