| From Carl Salbach catalog 1939: HAPPY GIFT (Salbach 1939) (Dauntless X W. R. Dykes). Huge in size and clear of color, this outstanding big Dykes yellow is by far the best Dykes yellow we have seen, excepting only Happy Days. It does not have quite the smooth finish of Happy Days, but otherwise is in every respect as good - it is a variety that we have grown for several years, but did not care to introduce to the detriment of Happy Days. Therefore we finally decided to include it as a premium to "back up" Happy Days rather than to compete with it. We do not have reports on the behavior of this new yellow in the East, but its lack of lush winter or early spring growth, plus its Dauntless parentage indicate that it will probably do well anywhere. Color pinard yellow, branching perfect, and flowers huge. Not sold separately under any circumstance, but one rhizome of Happy Gift will be given as a premium with each retail order for three rhizomes of Happy Days, (Two Happy Gift with an order for six Happy Days, four with an order for twelve, etc.).
