From AIS Bulletin #206 July 1972 Introducing POLLY DODGE: 24", M. A wine red unique among red Siberians because of its velvety texture and richness of color. A colchicine induced chimera, it has given us some seedlings with tetraploids but we are introducing it as a highly fertile diploid. No branching but succession of scapes gives it a long bloom season. An ample stock enables us to offer it for $15. Currier McEwen.
