| From Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: REIGN OF GLORY (Marx 1953) Each $6.00 A rare beauty for the fancier who seeks the ultimate in charm and unique color pattern. At first glance the color might be described as silvery blue but close inspection of the flower reveals a most intricate network of fine delicate stippling and reticulations of sky blue over a white ground. This color scheme intensifies towards the outer margins which are solid violet blue. Fully double 8 to 9 inch flowers on well branched stems produced over a long period.
