See below:



From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1957: TEHAMA (Kerr '57) Sdlg. No. 53-44-E Gatesii X Susiana. The standards of this pure oncocyclus seedling are light lavender, veined with a deeper purple. There seems to be a grey haze overlaying the white ground of the falls and over this a heavy lacy pattern in deep maroon. You might call this an onco neglecta as that is the color effect, but the most prominent feature and the first you will notice is a really black signal patch right in the middle of the falls. 26" tall. $15.00
