From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1938: "Rather a bizarre contrast of bright rose-red and white, especially striking in the garden picture because of its great carrying power. Viewed closely, it is a flower with solid rose-red standards and falls of the same color striped white . . . quite different than the usual haft markings of heavily veined types. An easy doer with nicely branched stems, three feet tall. A good supply permits introduction at the low price of $3.00 each."

  • This variety was listed at its introduction and never appeared in another catalog again, as far as I have been able to find. Why did it disappear? -- Main.mikeu - 29 Sep 2019
