  • [Cooley's Gardens 1987]: Firmly fluted edges and tones of lavender-brown and burgundy are associated with a dancing circus pony. The lavender-brown of the standards is repeated in the band around the burgundy falls, which sport a center highlight. Petals are very heavy substance, blooms very large--8 to the stalk--haft bronze, and beards orange. -- DavidPotembski - 30 Apr 2013
