From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1962: ARIZONA VIOLET (Corliss 1956) E. This glowing amethyst violet flower has enchanted all who have seen it. It is one of the earliest of the Louisianas to bloom. In place of a yellow signal patch there is a spot of dark aconite violet. There is so much life in the velvety amethyst violet segments that it is considered by many to be the most beautiful of the dark Louisiana hybrids. Well branched and bred for cold, hardiness and vigor. 32 in. $6.00
