See below:


From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: HORNED PAPA (Austin '61) L-37". A phenomenal pollen-parent of horned, spooned & even flounced Iris. A yellow, flushed & lightly splashed in crimson, with horns varying mostly from 1/3" to 1". But hereditary genes are such that pollen of this on non-horned Happy Birthday has already yielded all of these: Horned Tangerine, Fabulous Fringes, Spoon of Gold, Lemon Spoon and Golden Unicorn. Has proved so valuable in crossing I have propagated large quant1t1es to offer at a price way down, within reach of every eager hybridizer. The very best "buy" in this entire catalog for the busy hybridizer! Regularly $3.00; on $15 order 2 for $2.40; on $25 order 3 for $2.1O; Horned Papa and Happy Birthday for only $2.95 on $10 order.
