From AIS Bulletin #273 April 1989 Introducing GRAY POUPON * SDB * Third World X Jewel Baby * Very satiny greenish mustard gold with pale violet styles and gray b. tipped mustard from throat. Extremely vigorous, excellent form and it's an excellent rebloomer. $10.00. Moonshine Gardens.
From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: GRAY POUPON (SOB) 13" E-L, E34-101: THIRD WORLD X JEWEL BABY. Very satiny greenish mustard gold flowers with violet styles topped with fringed yellow crests and gray beards tipped mustard-gold from throat. Another nearly unbelievably strong reblooming dynamo! Not a child of BABY BLESSED but grandchild 1! Last year from one rhizome planted in '87 in our RE display bed came such bloom, steadily--March thru May, again in July and then loads more stalks in October and November and after all that there was left the biggest "one year" clump I've ever seen--so many increases of all sizes squeezed together so tightly they were impossible to count! Normally it starts reblooming here in early October. Large flowers with closed standards and round horizontal falls and they're usually well above the foliage. It's a sib to DARK CRYSTAL and SPARKPLUG, a most exciting cross and it is fertile both ways and will undoubtedly prove to be a most exciting parent. $10.00
