| KATHARINE LARMON (Graves 1942) M. A dark but glowing blend of honey yellow, burnished copper, and Dresden brown that is very rich in color harmony. The standards are honey yellow, semi-domed and charmingly ruffled at the edge. The arched and flaring falls have an under color of aniline yellow flushed with burnished copper, and a touch of mauve just below the orange beard. The fluted border of the falls is Dresden brown, and adds greatly to the changeable taffeta effect of this firm ruffled flower. Colors taken from Ridgway. Exceptionally well branched with four branches and terminal. A richer, deeper and larger 'Jean Cayeux' and a great favorite in the garden. 38 in. $20.00. [Fairmount Gardens Catalog. Summer 1942, Spring 1943, Lowell, Massachusetts]
