From AIS Bulletin #209 April 1973 Introducing RACY RED (Jim Gibson '73) We are pleased to bring out a really RUFFLED red after testing it for two years in several gardens. It is, alas, rather late to rebloom, but it is worthwhile even when you will get only spring bloom. About 34". Midseason, it is so stylishly ruffled that it gets instant attention. Showing its plicata heritage, it has white epaulettes, giving it a dashing personality. A fertile pollen parent, it opens new vistas in the reds. $25.00. Avonbank Gardens.
