From Easy Breeze Gardens catalog, 1953: AIRY MISS (Linse 1953) Midseason, 26". Indeed an airy flower with its broad flaring falls, and domed overlapping standards. According to the Dictionary of Color, it is very near the color called Clematis, a self of unfading red-violet, with faintest trace of Mohr veining at the haft and an iridescent feather of a lighter, brighter hue in the center of the falls. Of moderate growth, clean, low foliage and excellent branching, from Ormohr ex Matterhorn, it clearly shows its hybrid ancestry. Will set seeds. Because of its restrained growth and low foliage it will combine beautifully with other plants in the border and I recommend it to you for that purpose. Each $10.00
