| From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog 1956: SHILOH (Wills 1954) L. 35 in. (Vatican Purple x Wabash). This really proved to be a knockout. We liked it extra well andnoticed that every garden visitor was much taken by it. A heavily ruffled blue bicolor or near neglecta of large size and beautiful form. Very clean hafts and a snowy white tipped beard makes it really stand out. 10.00.
