From AIS Bulletin #273 April 1989 Introducing LAS VEGAS * TB * Broadway X Earl of Essex * S. creamy tan; F. lemon-cream stitched bright red-violet; brownish gold b. Perfect heavily ruffled flowers on perfect show stalks and it's a good late rebloomer. $35.00. Moonshine Gardens.
From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: LAS VEGAS - 36" EM--M: D41-100 : BROADWAY X EARL OF ESSEX._Creamy tan S.; lemon-cream F. with hafts and borders stitched with bright red-violet plicating; brownish gold beards. We knew we'd hit the jackpot when lots of things from this charmed cross started reblooming. When this first did we knew we'd hit the "big one"!! So showy and just perfect in every respect here. What form! broad and ruffled, what show stalks! lots of ideally placed buds, what vigor! loads of increases every year. What breeding potential! it s fertile both ways. Has started as early as September here but late October-early November seems to be the norm. $35.00.
