From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog 1956: JUNE MEREDITH (Muhl. 1954) M. L. 36 in. (Party Dress x Pink Fulfillment). A complete self of very rich, deep pink with a heavy tangerine beard. Flowers are quite large with broad petals and have excellent form and substance. As I have seen and grown them this is my personal choice of the fine Muhlestein pinks. H. M. 1954. 25.00.
From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: JUNE MEREDITH (Muhlestein '54) ML-36". My favorite! Believed to be pinkest flamingo to date, acclaimed by many for depth & purity of color. A heavy tangerine-red beard adds greatly to effectivenesS of the bright coloring. One of the few real advances in deep flamingo pinks. Flowers large, with broad petals, excellent form & substance. Pollen produced profusely. JC'55: AM '56; TOP RU-Dykes both '58 and '59. Party Dress X Pink Fulfillment. Regularly $2.00; on $10 order $1.50; on $25 order $1.30.
