| From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: AUTUMN VELVET (Austin '62) ++ EM-33". I present this large intense carmine red, almost a self, as the nearest to true red of any Re-Bloomer, and at the same time its falls are more velvety than those of any other Re- Bloomer. Falls strongly flaring, with heavy substance and a large gold bronze beard. A flower of richness and elegance, to delight the most discriminating. Very well branched, with branches starting almost at the ground. A very heavy bloomer, making a bright mass of red in the garden, both spring and fall. Pollen ahundant. (Savage X Tabasco). Regularly $15.00; on $20 order $9.75; on $25 order $6.75.
