From Bay View Gardens catalog,1979: PREFACE. 34 inches, very early to early season. $25.00. Likely to be among the very first TB to bloom, and what a preface to the new season. An absolutely yummy combination of coral, peach and apricot that leaves your mouth watering! Heaviest of substance with overlapping hafts and tightly held standards. Has proven a splendid parent in producing soul satisfying coral shades. Quite vigorous with a reblooming tendency in our garden. From two of our most popular originations: No. 75-121X: (Entourage X Mandolin).
