From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1965: CENTER OF INTEREST (Fred Maddocks) 38" double. In this flower we have the joyous shout of vividly vying colors. All six petals are a rich royal purple, but surrounding the neat yellow spears in the center of the flower are wide areas of fluorescent electric blue. The deeply ruffled blossoms are medium in size and are born in profusion. $10.00
