From AIS Bulletin #284 January 1992 Introducing HARPSWELL CHANTEUSE: Tetraploid, 30", M. The 5" flowers have exquisitely ruffled form. White upright standards and wide, tufted styles form a cup above the still more ruffled, flaring falls. The falls are creamy white with soft greenish yellow at the hafts. Excellent upright plant habit with flowers floating above the leaves. Two branches, 4 buds. We love it. $35.00. Seaways Gardens/Pope's Perennials.
