| From AIS Bulletin #169, April 1963. Introducing ROBERT SMITHWOOD (Sdlg. 60-1) (Hall pink x Celestial Glory), 34''. M-L. A ruffled, medium violet-red flower (Wilson Ruby Red) with a touch of gold on its laced edges and at the hafts. Sturdy stalks with 4-way branching. Excellent substance, flowers last 3 days. A lovely flower in itself, we also believe that this may be a step towards true red-it gives whole rows of red-bearded red seedlings. We believe true red will come from pink breeding. $25.00. Sheaff Gardens.
