From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: FABULOUS FRINGES (Austin '61) ML-35". Truly a decorator's delight, for here the artistic touch has been achieved by evolution of a form that frequently produces flowers with highly ornamental fringed spoons. Sometimes spoons become narrow & horn-like: on the other hand, may occasionally splurge with production of full-grown flounces. You'll be out early each morning to see what it is up to now. Fast increaser; rhizomes rather small. Fabulously fertile both ways. 47 chromosomes. (Happy Birthday X Horned Papa). One of my sensational EXTRA Premiums, available free this year only, on all orders of $10 or more mailed within 15 days. See page 18. Regularly $15; on $20 order $10.50; on $25 order $8.95.
