A Strong flower with branching stems. 42 inches. $25.00 each.
From Bonnewitz catalog, 1927: ROMOLA (Bliss) — Dominion Seedling. This is one of the very best of the Dominion Seedlings. It is lighter toned than any other one we have seen. The blooms are very large with standards well arched and of pale lilac, tinged pale ivory. Yellow at the base. The falls are of velvety red-violet with light brown markings at the base. A strong grower and a most excellent variety. $20.00.
