From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1956: KALIFA FATIMA (White 1951) E. 30 in. (Oncebred). A very large oncobred with much of the true onco look. The ground color is off white and there is a full onco network of veining and spotting of purplish black with a large signal patch of deep purple. This has been wonderful for us. 5.00.
