From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing MOONLIGHT DUET (Sdlg. 6913 IR: from twenty years of fine reblooming seedlings). Here is sheer moonlight poetry as we knew it prior to the Apollo missions. A most generous light yellow plicata creation, extremely wide with perfect form and balance throughout. You will be delighted with this one. $30. Raymond Smith.
