From Schreiner’s catalog, 1953: COLORGLO (Schreiner 1953) M. 40". Dramatic in concept, brilliant in rendition, this stunning color gem in rose-pink and gold needs no word picture to enhance its gripping beauty. Truly a topmost blend! No. G318. $15.00.
From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1957: COLORGLO (Schreiner 1953) Each 3.5O. The parentage of RAINBOW ROOM is undeniable in this colorful blend, though it is obvious that it is a case when the offspring has exceeded the parent. The rosepink falls are suffused with gold and copper about the haft, the standards a golden buff. Indeed a dramatic concept of stunning beauty. Good size flowers on 3-1/2 foot stems.
