From Carl Salbach catalog, 1930: SANTA FE (Mohr-Mitchell Conquistador X Miss Willmott. As might be expected, this cross has given a flower of perfect form with flaring, almost horizontal falls and unequalled substance. It is a porcelain self, paling to white in the many days the flowers remain perfect in our garden. It is early. The medium-sized flowers are carried on close-branched stems, 36 inches high, suggesting a flight of birds, so airy is the effect of their flat, flaring falls. $5.00.
