From AIS Bulletin #133, April 1954. ROYAL VELOUR- (Conger) Reg '53 (Roses & Wine x Peggy Mac). Lafayette Civics Clubs' Trophy '53. The deep richness of Romanesque violet coupled with a velvety pile and high sheen makes the name appropriate. No perceptible signal patch to dispel the dark richness of the flower. $5.00.
