From Cooley's Gardens catalog 1965: Although this would be classed as a plicata it really carries but a minimum of dots or etchings, mostly near the center and on the hafts. The color is less buff or brownish than our illustration alongside, and inclines more to a chartreuse or champagne shade. Very large, slightly spreading with extra broad falls and superb branching. HC, AIS 1964. No. 1-62. 36 inches. Each $20.00.
