From Austin’s Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog for 1960: “Its coloring and profusion of bloom remind one of a tall hedge of Gold Of Orphir roses, so loaded with rich golden flowers that hardly a leaf shows. Gives a wonderful mass of color in a short time. In two years each rhizome will yield a clump of 8 to 12 tall flower stalks with about 60 flowers and buds. I know of no other oncobred that can compete with this record. Individual flowers are not large, but so plentiful, so colorful, everyone stands in admiration. Standards very deep yellow, falls bright yellow, heavily washed with reddish-orange.”

(Eupogocyclus hybrid X tall bearded), names lost in fire.
