From Marx Gardens catalog, 1962: DRIVEN SNOW (Marx 1961) Each $7.50. We never seem to grow enough of these beautiful snowy white Marhigos. This and SILVER WAVES introduced last year are quite distinct from the white varieties we introduced previously. As the picture portrays, a dominant feature of this beauty is the prominent center composed of many petaloids that seems to bubble up from the heart of each bloom. Large wavy flowers are fully double and possess extra good substance. Averages 8 to 9 inches. Midseason to late. 4 feet. Picture page 8.
