| From AIS Bulletin #189, April 1968 Introducing RASPBERRY PARFAIT (C. E. McCaughey). ML. 28". Beautifully formed raspberrypink with wide lacy petals and light ruffling. The standards have a blush of peaches and cream; the falls deepen to orchid-lilac. Sturdy, many budded stalks; not quite tall enough for the "standard" tall bearded class; but belonging here, none the less, because of other qualifying characteristics. Ideal for the front of the border and wind-swept areas. Parentage unknown. HC '62 and '67. Net $20.00. Mission Bell.
