From Carl Salbach catalog, 1927: FORTUNA. This flower of variegata coloring most unexpectedly appeared in a large batch of Alcazar X Esplendido seedlings and has proven not only quite distinct and attractive in itself, but, as might be expected of value in breeding. The clear amber yellow standards, 2-1/2 inches across and the somewhat narrower wax yellow falls, lined red brown, form a broad, rounded flower of Alcazar or Esplendido shape, something we have never seen before in this color scheme. Its growdh is not that of a variegata but a modified Alcazar, with a very strong branched stem which measured 29 inches last season. $5.00.
