From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1951: THISTLE BLOOM, Whiting 1951. No. 466 (SHANNOPIN X PATHFINDER). Midseason. 36 inches. Never before have we named three iriscs from the same seed pod. A lucky cross? Perhaps, but we saw great possibilities in the clear toned pink amoena, SHANNOPIN, with its excellent branching, even though its blooms are small. Crossed with our “fat pink” PATHFINDER. every seedling was a credit to its parents. MAYTIME is the clearest amoena of the group, OPERA PINK the purest self and THISTLE BLOOM a blended amoena type, in orchid pink or thistle tones. The flowers are large, firm and of classically rounded form. The stalks are strong and well branched and produced freely from hardy, robust plants. $10.00.
