From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog, 1968: CIMARRON STRIP (Tompkins 19681 M.L. 38 in. Camelot Rose x ((Ice 'n' Lime x Clarion Call) x (Clarion Call x Kin-na-zin)). Here's a seedling from the brilliant Camelot Rose that is as shocking in its "Blood and Thunder" color makeup as the Old West must have been in the actual Cimarron Strip days, for which this has been named. It is large, with very broad, rounded petals, the standards well domed and the falls huge, rounded and nearly horizontal. The stands area vivid blend of pinkish orange-red over a basic color of Apricot Chamois and the falls are a luminescent blend of Orange Cerise, Cardinal and Fuchsia reds. All in all, this is one of the brightest things we have seen in some years. It is a good grower with nice clean foliage and strong, excellently branched stalks. It is also proving to be a fascinating and sensational parent as well as is its sister Dulcey. No. 64-51. Net $35.00
