From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1963: KATHERINE McLAIN 58-97 (E. and A. Watkins 1963) M.L. Beautiful in form and finish this deep blue-purple always attracts the attention of garden visitors. In color it is a combination of Royal Purple flushed with deep Sea Blue that gives a very rich blue tone to the whole flower. The effect is a self with ruffled closed standards and wide flaring falls that surround the blue-purple beard. The firmly substanced flowers are evenly spaced on well branched sturdy stalks and keep their rich color even in adverse weather. Berna Derby x Calypso. 36 in. $20.00
