■(TB) 'Portland'

1938, Kleinsorge

'Portland' (Rudolph Kleinsorge, 1938) TB. Midseason Bloom. 40". Color Class-Y9M. (('Conquistador' x Cardinal') x 'Carfax') X 'Rameses'

See below:


From Carl Salbach catalog 1939: PORTLAND (Kleinsorge 1938). (Conquistador x Cardinal) x Carfax X Rameses. Standards frosty gold, falls coral rose - very close to being a giant Mary Geddes. The main difference in coloring of the two is that the standards of Portland are slightly lighter gold and the falls are more of a self color, lacking the gold haft lining. Or, to describe Portland in another way, one could say that it is a highly colored Rameses, for it has bright colors, while Rameses is more on the pearly type. Showy, standing out clear across the garden - and tall enough to give it unusual garden value. Mid-season to late. 45-inch. A good stock permits the second season price of $5.00.
