See below:



From Marx Gardens catalog, 1958: LADY IN WAITING (Marx 1957) Each $10.00. Both beautiful and dignified, this large white double with a most delicate pink border always looks its best. The white petals are edged with a narrow margin of lavender pink, close to true orchid, while the flat styles are white with orchid tips of the same hue. The 7-inch flower, rather large for its type, is slightly but exquisitely ruffled and of fine substance, which is reflected in the crisp bearing and the refined manner of the whole bloom. It carries itself with proud distinction. 32 inches tall. One- to two-way branching. Midseason to late. Pictured on page 5.
