UTAH SUNSET (T. Muhlestein). Early-Midseason. (Honeyflow x 46-16. Sister to Sunset Road.) Lovely, smooth blend of onion-skin pink, buff, and salmon. The flower is too large for its substance and the color will fade a bit in extreme sun, yet every garden visitor is drawn to its size and coloring. It should be highly valuable for hybridizing work as well as delightful in the border, and in arrangements where a lovely color is wanted. Because of its technical faults the price is held down, and only a limited number will be sold. Low well branched 32 inch stalk. Highly Commended 1949. Net …....... $10.00. [Tell's Iris Gardens, Our 1951 Introductions].
