FANCY FROSTING (Tompkins 1963) M.VL. (Pink Fulfillment x (Memories x Cameo Coral)). A tall, well branched, very showy new pink. The flowers are very large and broad petaled, the stands nicely domed and the falls extremely broad, round and beautifully flaring with nicely ruffled hafts and petal edges. One of the very pinkest we have seen, this is rich powder pink with a deep self-colored beard. Heavily substanced, it has a delightful velvety finish which is most unusual in the pink class. An outstanding beauty that gives a top notch performance over a long season. No. 58-143. $25.00. Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog, 1963.
