From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: HORNED LACE (Austin '60) M-38". My color photograph is so like the shimmering reality that a description is hardly needed. Yes, here is beauty personified. This world's first combination of prominent horns with heavily laced petal edges captivates every viewer. Unexcelled for growing for exhibition at flower shows where it is sure to be a sensation. A very large flower. Pollen fair to good; an extremely heavy seed-setter. Skylark X Ruffled Apache. Reguiarly $10; on $15 order $5.95; on $255 order $3.95; 3 for $11.25.
