From AIS Bulletin #129, April 1953. Introducing OLD VIENNA (Youth's Dream x Pres. Pilkington). The flowers are large and rounded with well closed standards. The basic color in both standards and falls is metallic with a band of golden brown with a strong suffnsion of this same gold brown at the hafts. There is no veining. Withstands wind and rain as the stalks are strong and the substance is heavy. There is no other like it in coloring. Mid-season. 38". $15.00 Net. Carpenter 1953.
This may have been given a High Commendation in 1950 under the name 'Old Ivory' (AIS Bulletin #119:42)
