From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: FIRST CURTAIN (Muhlestein '57) M-30". This is one of the very finest & truest pink selfs in existence. The beavily laced & ruffled petal edges make the flower simply adorable. Substance of the blooms is heavy; color a very clear rich pink with a heavy red-tangerine beard. Top-notcher for any breeder. Sometimes re-blooms, & passes this trait on to its children, as in Sweet Tomorrow. (Party Dress X Pink Fulfillment). Regularly $7.00; on $10 order $6.30; on $25 order $5.60.
