| From Farr's catalog, 1910: WYOMISSING (Amoena). S. creamy white, suffused delicate soft rose; F. deep rose at the base, shading to a flesh-colored border, a most beautiful variety. $1.00
| From Movilla Gardens catalog, 1921: WYOMISSING. (Farr 1909.) S. creamy white, suffused delicate soft rose; F. deep rose base, shading to flesh-colored border. A fine flower but a little washy and does not go well with other pinks or with purples. Strong grower and free bloomer.
| From H. P. Simpson catalog, 1922: WYOMISSING (Farr, 1909). A small and quite pretty bloom of delicate pink colors. Said by one grower to be the best pink at a low price. I can’t agree with him; it is with me the poorest and weakest grower that I have, and I cannot truthfully list and sell it.
