From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1964: FLOUNCED PREMIERE (Austin '61) EM 36". A truly glorious newcomer in which the narrow horns of its seed parent, Plumed Delight, have been magically broadened & transformed into delightfully variable spoons & flounces, many petal-like, & some marvelously doubled, folded & frilled. Pollen rather scarce, but an excellent seed setter. 48 chromosomes. Plumed Delight X Unicorn. Regularly $10.00; on $15 order $5.95; on $25 order $3.95; 3 for $10.05.
