From Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: ROSE TOWER $10.00 A Karahashi seedling of massive proportions with 10-inch flowers, wide rugged foliage and heavy stems. Of lighter hue than Giant Carmen and Imperial Velvet the color is near rose red. Prominent white centers and orange signals enliven the color. Of wonderful substance and texture the big ruffled blooms on sturdy 4-foot stems always command attention. One of our very finest introductions. Midseason.
