From AIS Bulletin #161, April 1961. Introducing FAIR IMAGE (Sanford Babson). 40". Magnificent pastel blue blend. Well branched, fine form, and vigorous. Net, $25.00. Melrose.
From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1964: FAIR IMAGE (Babson). So delicately put together in its color (but a sturdy grower)-so exotic in its effect (but thoroughly at home in your garden)-so down-right pretty! A soft blend of pale blue and lavender and the maroon veins deep in the throat add such an effect of depth. HM'62. 10.00.
