From Flowerfield Bulb Farms catalog 1956: ZAMA NO MORI (Grove of Zama). (Classic Horikiri variety). An enormous single type. The wide, overlapping falls are creped and drape downward. These are white dappled with light blue. The standards are small, rounded and edged with red-purple. Style crests are white, veins white. As is true of most of the single varieties, the buds are numerous, producing a succession of bloom throughout the season. Tall growing. Each $4.00. Three $8.00.
