TB 36″ M Re

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1961: “Shown on the front cover of this catalog in precise and accurate detail. Vivid and flashing with the sunshine on it or through it … glowing and alive on a cloudy day or in pouring rain. For rich, intense color in a plicata, this red-hot eye-catcher has no parallel. Dominant color is fiery burgundy to red pepper but a minor area on the falls is lit with cream. Beard is orange-bronze.”

From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog for 1962: “A large, broad-petaled flower. A plicata, this is so completely colored in rich cinnamon and burgundy red that only a minor area of cream on the fall prevents it from being a self. Very showy.”
