From Carl Salbach catalog, 1927: DON QUIXOTE. In effect this Argentina X Rameldo seedling is a huge flower of somewhat subdued Quaker Lady coloring. It is one of the strongest and quickest growers in our garden, with tall branched stems averaging 42 inches and flowers more than three times as large as older blends like Eldorado or Quaker Lady. In detail, the standards are deep lavender almost entirely overlaid yellow, the falls hyssop violet with heavy brown venation on a yellow ground, style arms buff and beard orange. $5.00.
