■(JI) 'Imperial Palace'

1955, Marx

'Imperial Palace' ( Walter Marx, R. 1955) Seedling 49-82B. JI (double), 48" (122 cm), Midseason late bloom. Beet-red self (M & P), deep yellow signal. 'Fascination' x 'Karahashi'. Marx 1955.

See below: * * References



From Walter Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: IMPERIAL PALACE $7.50 Karahashi has given us many fine red or purple seedlings and this is one of the best to date. A huge velvety beet red almost twice as tall as Karahashi. The amazing feature, however, is the unusually well branched stem with as many as 3 fully double 10-inch flowers all open at once! Unlike most red varieties it has resisted sunburn much better due to superior substance. A robust grower and extremely free blooming, established clumps are literally covered with flowers. Midseason to late. 4 feet. $7.50.
