From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing PORT LISBON. Main Event X Gypsy Lullaby. TB. 34", M-L. An air of fascination surrounds this charming bitone with standards of oyster-shell or smoky white. The claret red color of the falls extends into the base and midribs of the standards. Another sibling to Gala Madrid from a later cross. Tallest of the three; nicely branched, good bud count, vigor. Deep yellow beard. Fertile both ways. Limited stock. $25.00. Les Peterson.
