From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1958: GUNSMOKE (Earl Roberts) 36" (Sib. to MARION HAMILTON). This is a subtle wisp of color that only a few will really appreciate, but these few will find it both intriguing and lovely. The color is a light to medium, smoky, plum brown; smooth and uniform throughout and the note of brightness is there in the flash of the tangerine beard! Both standards, which are domed and closed, and the falls, semi-flaring, are extra wide and fluted. The stem is well branched and the plant is vigorous. $7.50
