Introductory listing from Carl Salbach catalog for 1929: SACRAMENTO. This new giant plicata, though related to San Francisco and of comparable size and habit, is absolutely distinct from anything previously introduced. Its large flowers have a white ground, the standards heavily edged red-purple, the falls reticulated with the same color, the prominent orange beard, unusual in plicatas lighting up the flowers in a most attractive way. Should be quite hardy, as Jasquesiana and Sherbert as well as San Francisco are in its parentage. Sold only in sets this year. If stock permits it will be offered separately in 1930 at $25.00.
