TB 40″ EM

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1960: “The richness of the fuchsia-purple tone is intensified by a generous margin of bronze around the huge falls. There is also a subtle infusion of the same tint in the taffeta-like standards. Metallic plum might well describe the general color effect of this new giant. Beard is lemon; 40″ high, fairly early.”

From Wild’s of Missouri catalog for 1972: “Richness of its fuchsia-purple tone is intensified by a margining of bronze around the plushy, flaring falls and a subtle bronze infusion in the well-cupped taffeta standards.”

((Gypsy Rose x Auburn) X Savage), HM 1960.
