■(JI) 'Beauty On Parade'

1957, Marx

'Beauty On Parade' (Walter Marx, R. 1957) Seedling 56-156. JI, 30" (76 cm), Midseason bloom. Standards white, thinly edged amaranth; Falls white, center stippled amaranth, border amaranth. Parentage unknown. Marx 1957.

See below:



From Marx Gardens catalog, 1958: BEAUTY ON PARADE (Marx 1957) Each $7.50 A red-bordered single with attractively flaring falls- one that really is parading its beauty. Fanciers may notice similarity with the broad-brimmed Higo Iris Torizan, but the wide border of rich violet (near amaranth red) is relieved in this new variety by the white, slightly stippled center radiating out into the edges of the flower. The semi-erect standards are white with thin amaranth edge, and the cream-colored styles, so exceptionally long that they almost completely hide the signal patch, are tipped amaranth also. The stem is one-way branching and 30 inches high. Late. Pictured on page 5.
