Awaiting original catalog description
Watch for a pert new yellow-brown plicata named OTAY from Roberta Snell. It has the same clear, bright colors that have made the old BB 'Meadowlark' a favorite long after its time. Both the bright yellow-ground and the rich brown stripings and dottings are unfading-and Roberta's central Washington garden has the sunshine to test them, believe me! Her bitoned lavender-blue 'Toneen' often has as many as four small frilly flowers open at once, one above another on gracefully curved stems.
