From AIS Bulletin #225 Spring 1977 Introducing SPIRIT OF MEMPHIS M and Oct., 36". (Sdlg. H 62 Nov.). Heavily ruffled, heavily laced brilliant medium yellow self! Large flowers of excellent form on excellent stalks. There are a few small white marks beside the self beard, but they do not detract. Mrs. Bowman reported an excellent display last year in Memphis. Its rebloom is rather too late here, but it will be a strong competitor on spring bloom alone. Pod fertile. (Miss Illini x Grand Baroque) X Halloween Party. $30.00. Lloyd Zurbrigg.
