FAIR SKY (Grant 1941) M. L. The name is an excellent word picture of this pale blue self for its sparkling finish and color remind one of the light blue sky on a clear June day. The broad domed standards are soft pearl blue with a very strong midrib. The falls are arched and semi-flaring of the same delicate blue with faint flush of yellow in the throat. Beard clear yellow. The flowers have very firm substance and ruffled rounded form. A floriferous and non fading blue with very sweet fragrance, good branching and long season of bloom. 40 in. $5.00. [Mrs. Thomas Nesmith, Fairmount Gardens Catalog, Lowell, Massachusetts, Introductions for 1941. Summer 1942-Spring 1943].
