Berry, R&I 1929

TB 48″ M B3D

From S.S. Berry’s catalog for 1929: “A superb seedling of Conquistador by Moa, combining the deep richness of color of the pollen parent and the antecedent Dominion with the size and rampancy of the seed parent. S. clear lavender-purple, F deep velvety blackish-purple; 4 ft. Not over two or three plants to go before 1930.”

From Oakhurst Gardens catalog for 1939: “Rich, pure violet bi-color with dark velvety falls and lighter, more translucent standards. It carries the height of Conquistador and the rich velvety quality of Moa. One of the best of Dr. Berry’s introductions. 50 in.”
