From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing SECRET GARDEN (L. L. Harder, 1975). SDB, 14", E-L. From a cross that produced many beautiful seedlings, this was selected as the finest. Standards are pale rose, blending to a lighter shade on edges (RHS 81C). The falls are a deep, almost maroon-red in a spot pattern, edged in a lighter color than that of the standards (82D). The flower color is set off by a silvery blue beard. Some striations at haft. Many flower buds for a long bloom season as the bloomstalk is branched. (Fi Lee X Flaming Dawn). $7.50. Maple Tree Gardens.
