From Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: ROYAL PAGEANT $7.50 Our high regard for old Rose Anna as a breeder has resulted in hundreds of richly colored seedlings with darker veining. We selected this beauty particularly for its extra long blooming season. Among the very largest in its color class, it is one of the first to open and surprisingly remains in flower with the very latest varieties. Ground color is pale mauve sharply veined deep red purple. Dark purple styles and golden signals add interest. Well branched 4-foot stems each usually bear 6 flowers.
