From AIS Bulletin #201 April 1971 Introducing LOUD MUSIC (Muhlestein). M-L. 36". Bon Vivant X Wild Peacock. Attaining the show and brilliance hoped for in this cross, yet a blaze down the falls detracts for me. Well-branched stalks carry many buds. Standards brilliant yellow-orange; falls purple blended violet (amaranth) with hafts and falls bordered tan; orange beard. As colorful as some of the "MOD" costumes and music. Fertile both ways. No. 236A. Net $25.00. Tell's Gardens.
