TOWN AND COUNTRY (Gaulter '71 ) Each $20.00. A silvery rose-violet of spreading form and with unusual curls and contrasting appendages in the standards. This is from a long line of seedlings involving Marie Phillips and Sterling Silver; in fact it inherits some of its silvery contrasts from the latter. Both standards and falls are of a uniform, bright roseviolet hue and the beard is white. All petals are gracefully waved at the margins. Large flowers on stout stems, 34 inches in height. Seedling No. 67-34. [Cooley's Iris, 1970]
