From Schreiner’s catalog, 1969: REGALAIRE (Schreiner 1969) EM. 34" $20.00. An air of quiet elegance distinguishes rich, velvet deep blue REGALAIRE. The perfection of the single bloom seems letter perfect in its preciseness and the uniformity of coloring carries that pleasant ultimate which comes with a true self. A handsome beard of the same deep shade of blue enhances the flower. So deep a blue, it verges toward dark, yet it remains a truly deep blue. Sdlg. #Y243-F. HC'68. Illustrated on our front cover.
