CAPE TOWN (Gaulter, '67) M. 38" Each $6.00 This subtle interfusion of delicate beige and rose-lilac results from a cross of 'Claudia Rene' and 'Glittering Amber', as does the new 'Baccarat'. However, there is no color similarity in the two. The first is flamboyant and lively; this one is less exciting, more tranquil, but equally beautiful and appealing. Standards and falls are about the same shade of mauve, but the contrasting brown-purple hafts provide a sharp contrast. Beard is deep orange. Very wide falls and abundant ruffling enhance its all 'round high quality. No. 63-145. [Cooley's Iris, 1967].
