From AIS Bulletin #281 April 1991 Introducing BRAZEN HUSSY-TB. Your garden visitors will actually blush at the sight of this voluptuous dame. An unusual combination of two violet tones-bluer in the standards, redder in the falls-have more contrast in texture. The interesting arrangement of pigments and cell layers gives this hussy a "blouse" of grape satin. Her lightly laced, semi-flaring "skirts" are of full violet wine and extra velvety. These ruffle up extensively, showing the silky sheen and color of the standards underneath. Most brazen are the veins she exposes so prominently on her hafts. She also uses lots of sweet cologne. Beards are bronzy gold orange. Eight buds on 34" stalks. 170-1: Red Jade X Glory Bound. $30.00. Gaddies' Gardens.
