SILVER LUSTRE (C. Carpenter 1942) M. L. A light Wistaria violet blue self with better form and substance than 'Shining Waters' and absolutely hardy. The standards are large and firmly domed, and have a strong midrib. The falls are very broad and flaring. A cool white area each side of the beard with white markings welldown in the throat. Beard broad and full, yellow in the center of the flower paling out to Wistaria violet at the tip. The flowers are beautifully formed with heavy substance withstanding wind, and hot sun to a marked degree. There is a silvery luster enveloping the whole flower reminding one of sunlit spray. A profuse bloomer over a long season. Three branches and terminal. 40 in. $10.00. [Fairmount Gardens Catalog. Summer 1942, Spring 1943, Lowell, Massachusetts]
