From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1945: "Large flower of subdued rose tones, bordering on lilac or pale violet. It has a slaty overcast, suggesting the soft colors of mountain valleys at sundown. The beard is gold and there is some brown shading at the haft. a sturdy and well branched stalk 40 inches tall holds the self-colored blossoms well aloft. Petals are crimped like an Oriental Poppy."
