From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1932: PASTEL SHADES (Essig, 1932). A thoroughbred intermediate plicata with well-balanced and somewhat ruffled flowers, which are of a charming combination of yellow, amber, and old gold, overlaid with pink color tones. The name somewhat expresses the color effect. This beautiful hybrid produces an abundance of flowers and is especially fine as a cut flower and as an exhibit at flower shows. $5.00
