From AIS Bulletin #248 January 1983 Introducing RAGTIME. 36", EL. Bold, audacious...valiant, confident. Brilliant yellow standards (1IA) deepen slightly at their base with this vivid color spilling partly down the fall petals, ending near the tips of bush yellow-orange beards. The falls are finished in violet-blue (91A) bordered tan. Broad ruffled parts. Superb stalks and branching. From Star Spangled X Betty Simon with siblings showing very little variation. Ragtime seems to have inherited the hybrid vigor sometimes resulting from wide crosses. HC '82. #H74-64. Net $25.00. Mission Bell Gardens.
