From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1964: GENTIAN FALLS (Zurbrigg '59) M-34". Out of the ordinary. Imagine, if you can, pure white beautifully arched standards, & very blue falls, set off by a glowing deep orange beard, almost tangerine. Almost all the older amoenas have falls in purple or lavender, but here there is no question about the color; it is definitely gentian blue. Flowers very large with heavy substance & good form; very free flowering. Fertile either way, a wonderful breeder. Gaylord X Wabashine. Regularly $3.00; on $10 order $2.20; on $25 order $1.70; 3 for $4.85.
