| From Carl Salbach catalog, 1930: QUERIDA (Mohr-Mitchell (Mesopotamica X Oriflamme X Empire. This is almost exactly of Aterglow coloring but about twice as large and of better substance and shape, or we would not have felt justified in introducing it. The delicate pinkish lavender flowers, with style branches, beard and hafts all flushed yellow, give a warm pastel effect. As there are eight buds on each of the slender, well-branched stems, 42 inches high, it is a lovely plant forthe border and deserves its name, the Spanish equivalent of sweetheart. In our Berkeley garden it is a most persistent fall bloomer, though it never fails to flower in the spring as as well. While Querida is worth while growing anywhere for its beauty, California gardeners will especially value it for this fall-flowering characteristic. $10.00.
