References:

From C. H. Hall catalog, 1925: ELSINORE (1925)- Primrose yellow, the standards and falls more or less bordered with vernonia purple. A charming flower of delicate coloring. 34 inches. $5.00 each. Delivery after July I, 1925.
ELSINORE. A flower but little known, and one which is deserving of greater popularity. I found it blooming in splendid form in several gardens in New York, Connecticut, and about Boston, and it made an instant hit with me at least. Of only medium size, its dainty blossoms of pale primrose-yellow are delicately edged and stained violet, and are produced abundantly. Something different. Try it. Each $1.25; three for $3.00. Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932.
