TB, 40″ (102 cm), Midseason to late bloom. Bright red-carmine self. (Sunstone’ x ‘Color Glo’) x Defiance’. Fleur de Lis 1958. Honorable Mention 1958.

From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1964: HIGH BARBAREE (Tompkins ’58) E-L-38″. One of the finest of the many new reds that have been appearing in recent years. A color photpgraph reproduces it for you in all its glory. Not only is this nearest to true red, bu it 1s also nearest to a true self with standards almost as deep as the falls–a very desirable, but seldom seen characteristic. Color between currant red & carmine. Very finished appearance. Bright yellow beard contrasts smartly. Stalks widely branched, & while some are strictly erect, others may be spreading so stalks from a two-year clump from a single rhizome often make a stunning cluster five feet across. Pollen abundant. HC’57, HM’58. (Sunstone x Colorglo) X Defiance). Regularly $5.00; on $10 order $4.25; on $25 order $3.75.
