Awaiting original catalog description
From Bonnewitz catalog, 1926: MOA (Bliss) — Dominion Seedling. $25.00. “This variety, one of the finest of the Dominion race, has enormous flowers, with broad arching standards of pure violet color, and broad, almost circular, smooth flat falls of deep violet-purple or pansy-violet. It is one of the tallest of the Dominion race, a splendid grower with well branched spikes. Very prolific bloomer, with individual flowers of great substance.” No doubt this variety will win a coveted place in the Dominion group.
