| From AIS Bulletin #157, April 1960. Introducing PIETY Sdlg. #5609 (Snow Goddess X (Winter Carnival x Azure Skies) x White Sentry) x (Great Lakes x Winter Carnival) x Sib.)). PIETY was so named because it reminds one of quiet reverence, devotion and benevolence like the white angel standing silently in a Christmas tableau. It is a white white with a very light lemon cast to the beard. It is neither plain or fancy, tailored or lacy, but has a full form with semi-flaring, fluted falls and strong domed standards. The hafts are wide and clean. It stands about 36", has fine branching and larger than average flowers. Early-midseason. H.C. 1958. NET. $20.00. Charles Branch.
