From Edenwald Gardens catalog, 1957: DEAR MOM (Buss '57). M. 40". How many boys have turned their thoughts homeward in letters commencing with this simple and fond salutation- Dear Mom. Here is a large yet dainty white plicata with delicate lavender markings that seem to personify the gentle loveliness of its namesake. Every mother will delight in the symbolism and the quiet charm of this 6" x 6" flower, so feminine in its appeal and yet so dependable in its vigor and staunch 3-branched stalks. 5.00
