From Carl Salbach catalog, 1927: ALAMEDA On 40-inch stems, low and well but not widely branched, are borne these very large distinct flowers. The white standards are heavily suffused blue violet and the falls both reticulated and irregularly flushed the same color. Striking and differing from any plicata we have ever seen. $10.00
From Carl Salbach catalog, 1938: ALAMEDA. Just as outstanding and distinct today as when first introduced. Not quite as tall as San Francisco and Los Angeles, but very fine and in such demand that it has been sold out during each of the past two seasons. Standards and falls both heavily suffused blue violet on white; in fact the standards carry so much blue that one could almost describe this part of the flower as blue, suffused white. A profuse bloomer. Midseason. 34-inch. 25c; 3 for 50c.
