VASHON. "Most stock of this quality apricot-peach beauty was discarded inadvertently. It was so outstanding that we had to build it up again. The huge flowers are really too large for the height of the stalk. Standards are aureolin with a pink glow. Falls are same with a large white area around beard. Clean hafts deepen to near Indian yellow. There is some veining by beard which is tangerine orange. Two and three branches and terminal. Fertile both ways. H.M. '68.....$10.00" [Eden Road catalog, 1970]
