From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing GRECIAN GOWN (Moldovan 72). E-M. 38" Sdlg. 69-10 (64-20: (Rococo x Rippling Waters) x (64-21: (Full Circle x Esther Fay) X Pink Taffeta). Unique, very large, heavily ruffled creamy pink self with lavender plicata spots on either side of the light tangerine beard. Widely branched stems carry many buds. Very fine! Fertile both ways. $25.00. Moldovan's Gardens.
A very delicate pink plicata-nearly white ground surrounded ever so lightly with pale pink plicata markings-is GRECIAN GOWN (Moldovan '72). Here is another good grower, a quite feminine flower, and certainly worthy of attention in the uncrowded pink plicata class.
