From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1964: BERCEUSE (Babson ’64) Early to midseason (E61-3 x Mary McClellan) x (Goodness sib). A novel and lustrous reverse bitone with broad and fluted blue white falls. The standards are a soft but full light lavender blue, fluted, wide and closed. A blue beard tipped light yellow finishes the detail of a wonderful flower. Branching is excellent and a clump is a floriferous crowd of these large flowers. The contrast of color is more apparent at a distance. $25.00.
