At its unveiling at the Lafayette Show in 1949 there was no doubt of the success of this variety. The large broad floral segments of wisteria violet are combined to create a most pleasing campanulate form that flares. The large spear-shaped signal patch of bright yellow is outlined by a deeper and redder violet. Flowers, 7" span; height, 36". $5.00.
