From Quality Gardens catalog 1931: SOLFERINO (Cayeux 1925) E. 48" F. An offspring of Aphrodite, but is a much better flower. It has the same shape, substance and stem the picture shown in this catalog that it richly deserved all the praise we have always heaped upon it. For great height, perfect form, graceful carriage, wonderful poise and substance, there is nothing that approaches it. $5.00.
