From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1962: ARIZONA RUBY (Corliss 1960) M. A large Ruby Red with a tiny dart of a yellow signal. The flowers open flat and are five inches in diameter with velvety texture and strong firm substance. This was especially bred for hardiness and has D. K. Williamson and The Khan in the background, the former for cold resistance and the latter for size. Brilliant in color it stands out in the garden and is lovely for flower arrangement. 35 in. $8.00
