From Marx Gardens catalog, 1962: ROSE PRELUDE (Marx 1960) Each $5.00. We have achieved the nearest approach to deep rose-pink in this charming new Marhigo. The uniform color is just a shade lighter than our earlier introduction Majestic Mountain, which is sold out until 1963. The picture illustrates the lovely color faithfully as well as the value of this beauty in large bouquets or mixed arrangements. Rose Prelude flowers most abundantly from early to midseason. 3 feet. Picture page 4.
