From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1963: CARRIE LEE (Wiswell 1963) M. This delightful pink Siberian was named to honor the Mother of Mrs. Wiswell. Beauty of shape and color are united in this lovely Siberian that is the first really pink one that I have ever seen and it is a great achievement in breeding. The blooms are broad with erect standards and semi-flaring falls forming cup shaped flowers that are lightly ruffled on the border shading down to a throat of lighter tone. Truly a very lovely large pink, it has an abundance of bloom that is displayed on strong well branched stalks. 32". 5.00
