From AIS Bulletin #209 April 1973 Introducing CONVERSATION PIECE. Sdlg. 9269E. An outstanding addition to the rather limited class of good brown blends. There has been an especially complimentary response from those who have seen it in our garden and the guest plantings where it has been grown. The silken brown bud opens up into an intriguing blend with a yellow tinge around the deep yellow beard. It is a very ruffled bloom with wonderful substance to withstand the sun and the elements, an unusual quality in browns. Has domed standards and wide flaring falls. It is a strong grower and has a good stem. Really an eyecatcher in the garden. The name is fittingly appropriate. Late midseason.36 inches. $25.00. Echo Hill Garden.
