Deep salmon standards are ruffled and firmly closed, being held that way by strong, graceful midribs. Flaring falls are apricot-orange with a small white area surrounding a very wide deep orange beard. The flowers are of medium size carried on unusually tall stalks. The plant is vigorous; it increases rapidly. 36". $25.00. Bennett Jones.
