1940, Salbach

'Spring Delight' (Carl Salbach, R. 1940) IB. Late midseason bloom. Color Class-Y6M. ('Dauntless' x 'W. R. Dykes') x ('Comstock' x 'California').

See below:


From Salbach catalog, 1940: SPRING DELIGHT (Salbach 1940). (Dauntless x Dykes) X (Comstock x California). Not especially large, but a finely finished flower, with lots of life. Blooms a little larger than Elsa Sass, which it somewhat resembles, except that the color is deeper, and the falls broader. Standards are a bright deep yellow, falls are yellow shading to creamy white center, with heavy veining of olive brown on the upper half. Blooms are well proportioned and freely produced on low-branched stalks. "It just sparkles," was the realistic comment of a visitor. Splendid for clump effect where bright colors are desired. Late, mid-season. 24". $2.50.
