From AIS Bulletin #265 April 1987 Introducing DUKE OF EARL (Byers '87) Sdlg. C12-104: Earl of Essex X (Sky Hooks x unidentified reblooming plicata). TB, 34", EM-M & RE. White ground plicata with all petal edges stippled bright red-violet; cream beards. Big heavily ruffled and very heavily substanced flowers with domed standards and very wide, nearly horizontally flaring falls. It has given some real show stalks but the branching has varied. It's a prodigious grower and increaser. What a parent for superb reblooming plicatas for the 90's this should be. As it's out of a horned seedling, it should mesh nicely into space age lines also. $30.00. Moonshine Gardens.
