From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1948: This causes exclamations from all of our friends who have happened to see it. It is a glistening brown flower with a blaze of blue-violet extending from the end of the golden beard. In slanting light the Buckthorn to Dresden brown (Ridgway ) surfaces seem to be sprinkled with gold dust. The size is medium, 5 inches; substance good; flowers well placed. The brown color grows lighter in hue as the flower ages, but it is delightful at all times. Fragrant. 3 feet. $15.00
