Comment from Carol Ramsey, AIS Bulletin #210 July 1973:13: CROWN - starchy light yellow, blue beard, horizontal flaring, in full bloom becomes a solid mass of yellow crowning the foliage - I always wonder if Bee heard the trumpets of a certain margarine commercial when she named this. [Carol Ramsey, AIS Bulletin #210 July 1973:13].
