From AIS Bulletin #209 April 1973 Introducing KISSIMEE: Full red-violet self with blue beard. Very nice. $5.00. A pumila hybrid; that is, Lilliput X pumila, and blooms between pumila and chamaeiris. It more nearly resembles pumila in style and growth habits, but is just a bit larger. Usually this type is quite sterile. Frank Williams.
