From AIS Bulletin #265 April 1987 Introducing CROCUS (David Sindt, 1987) Miniature Dwarf Bearded, 20 em (8"). Standards of mid-yellow, arched, open, and artfully ruffled, perch atop flaring and rounded falls of cream. The center of each creamy fall is decorated with a precise dollop of rich gold. Yellow style arms brighten the interior, while orange-tipped beards intensify the color. The effect? Refreshing, crisp, inviting-and decidedly reminiscent of the first crocus of spring. Seedling 630: Paul X Funny Face. $10.00. Adamgrove.
