From Fairmount Gardens Catalog. Summer 1942, Spring 1943, Lowell, Massachusetts. BURNISHED COPPER (Grant 1942) M. The name is very fitting for this blend of buff, brown, copper, and red has the warm metallic lustre of old burnished Russian copper. In color it is between 'Brown Thrasher' and 'Copper Lustre'', and gives a much brighter effect than the latter. The standards are golden chestnut with a thread of Saraband red extending completely around the edge. The falls are Saraband red overlaid Pompeii, the color deepening toward the edge. The center of the flower and beard is glowing coppery yellow. The flowers are rounded in form with good substance. Stalk strong with three branches and terminal. Colors are taken from Maerz and Paul, Dictionary of Color. 36 in. $10.00.
'BURNISHED COPPER' was even more lovely this year than last, and rich in copper, brown, and red evenly blended into the burnished tones we find in old Russian copper." [A.I.S. Bulletin 82:15 July 1941]
