From AIS Bulletin #169, April 1963. Introducing MAIN ATTRACTION (Z. G. Benson '63). Midseason, 35", (First Violet x Whole Cloth). Probably the best Whole Cloth seedling to date-crisp, closed white standards contrasting beautifully with deep blue-violet, nicely ruffled, and nearly horizontal falls. Outstanding form, substance, and eye-catching color made this the MAIN ATTRACTION at the windswept national convention last spring where it was shown in the Roy Brizendines' gardens in Topeka, under number 3-26-9, and garnered a record 37 votes for an H.C. '62. Net $25.00. Z. Benson.
