From Mid-America Garden catalog, 1984: AUTUMN BLUSH- TB, 33" (B4 cm), Early-Midseason. At last, a Sienna Star child that grows well and carries that wonderful sienna beard. Standards are medium buff pink with paler edge, ruffled and lightly laced. Nicely flared and ruffled falls are cream with a distinct greenish cast. Amber rose hafts and pale pink diffused halo set the stage for the stunning sienna beard. Taller and a far better grower than either parent. There are two to three branches with seven to eight buds. Sdlg. 681-86: Sienna Star X Rhoda Ann. $25.00.
