No. 41-2, to be named BIT O' HEAVEN, is a pale yellow reverse bicolor with Martius yellow standards and white falls bordered with the same yellow as the standards. It is charming in every way. [A.I.S. Bulletin 82:14-15 July 1941]
BIT O' HEAVEN (Grant 1942) E. M. A pale yellow reverse bicolor of great charm and refinement of form. The standards are Martius yellow, arched and well domed. The falls are semiflaring with a large center area of white; the hafts of the falls are clear lemon yellow, and this color extends in a narrow border completely around the falls. The beard is yellow changing to clear blue at the tip, and this gives an ethereal touch to the whole flower. The blooms have firm substance and flaring form; the stalks are strong and well branched, three branches and terminal. 36 in. $10.00. [Fairmount Gardens Catalog. Summer 1942, Spring 1943, Lowell, Massachusetts]
