From Carl Salbach catalog, 1928: BONITA (Mohr-Mitchell) 1928. (Ramona X Shekinah.) The well-shaped S. are a clear buttercup yellow, broad flaring F. are buttercup yellow to cream in the center, set off by a beautiful orange beard. In our garden, where Gold Imperial grows 28 inches, this runs to 34, but like other yellows of this type would probably be taller under conditions of greater moisture. A very attractive garden flower, as it is long blooming and the color carries well. This is only being introduced after careful comparison with Amber, Shekinah, and other standard yellows. $5.00 each.
