From AIS Bulletin #218 July 1975 Introducing TULIP FESTIVAL (Clough '75). Sdlg. PIN-73-3, 25", M-L. This is by far the finest yellow and white amoena I have ever seen or grown. It is the product of 16 years of hybridizing involving Pinnacle, Chivalry, Desert Song, Summit and Glacier Gold. The domed standards are snow white with just a tint of yellow in the midrib, not noticeable. The falls are a light, bright lemon yellow, very broad even at the hafts, which are clean; they flare nicely and have some ruffling. The beard is the same color as the falls. Style branches are light yellow. Flower size about 4" across; strong bloomstock and adequate branching. Fertile both ways. A very thrifty grower; 7 buds. $25.00. W. H. Clough.
