The large flowers are beautifully ruffled in both standards and falls, showing clearly the inheritance from its two superb parents.

The standards are nicely domed and retain their position even in heavy rain, wind and sun.The plants are vigorous and easy to grow. Sets seed readily. $20.00
From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1956: NOMOHR (Gibson 1955) M. 38 in. (Snow Flurry x Elmohr). This was quite sensational in our garden last year and we consider it the best of the new hybrids.

Extra heavy substance and many flowers make this a very long blooming variety. 18.00.
