From AIS Bulletin #161, April 1961. Introducing LILTING MELODY ((Fay 4944 x Mary Randall) x Olson 50-lOA)) x 5454D))). A delectable laced and fluted flower with plenty of starch in its makeup. The delightful coloring is a luscious true pink (Pink Dawn-Maerz and Paul) with no hint of yellow or peach. Has a beard to match. The well-proportioned blooms have wide-hafted, flaring falls and firmly held standards. Has a sturdy stalk with three buds in each socket. It is a strong grower. Fertile both ways. An eyecatcher in our garden for the past two years. Truly a charmer. Midseason. 35 inches. HC 1958. Net $25.00. Dorothy Palmer.
