From Tell’s Gardens catalog, 1964: BUTTERFLOWER (Delphine Harden '64) BB. E. 20 in. (plicato sdlg: Joke x Wabash) X Party Dress) Actually starts blooming with the "lilliputs" and when you see this flower with its rich golden yellow color (Between chrome yellow and lemon-yellow) and the deeper, long orange-yellow beard you will suspect ithas Party Dress as a parent. It could throw plicatas, amoenas, pinks, apricots and oranges. Pods rather easily with only a few seeds. $10.00
