From Fairmount Gardens, 1955: ROYAL TOGA (Nesmith 1955) M. Unique, yet beautiful is probably the best way to describe the color combination of this Spuria. The standards of Campanula Violet (37) are very erect and firmly held. The falls are white, clearly veined with the same violet of the standards with long raised bright yellow signal. Firm textured standards and semi-recurving falls. The decided contrast between standards and falls is most effective. Parentage, Purple seedling x Blue Rocket. 42 in. $10.00
