DAWN CANDLE (Ferguson '65). The well-placed flowers of cream standards and yellow falls with golden-orange signals consistently stand high above the foliage. From a distance, one might get the impression that it's just another light yellow were it not for the impressive stalk height. A truly great accent clump! [Chesnik, Ray (1971).
