| From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1957: BROWNETT (Earl Roberts '57) pumila Carpathia X unknown. Something new in color for the pumila dwarfs. The standards are bright orange (Barium yellow, Wilson) and the falls are TRUE dark velvety BROWN with an edging of yellow. The flower reaches the height of 4''. Earl says this of his first child, "It is the most floriferous and vigorous pumila I have ever seen, by far. This year it had so many buds that I had pods setting, flowers in bloom and buds still to open on the same plants." No, it doesn't bloom out either, it is a fast increaser. $4.00
