From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: This name comes not from the Greek but from mediaeval Brittany. The opera 'Tristan and Isolda' was written around the romance which also involves King Mark of Cornwall. This is one of the more unusual colorings in this type---over a mahogany groundwork is spread a network of old gold. Early bloom. 18" $3.00.
