From Carl Salbach catalog, 1930: ORUGA (Mohr-Mitchell.) (Parisiana X Mesopotamica) X Parisiana. The large flowers with broad, domed, lavender standards and wide flaring falls, deeper lavender in the center and shading to quite pale margins have a most striking orange beard which lights up the flower and makes it quite distinct. There are generally seven flowers well spaced on a stiff stem 44 inches high, low and widely branched, as with many of our seedlings. The name Oruga is Spanish for caterpillar, and was suggested by the prominent golden, fuzzy Beard. $5.00.
