From the Wing Seed Co. catalog for 1920: “Very pale and delicate coloring. S. very delicate mingling of palest lavender and Havana-brown, brightened with gold at the base; F. lovely pure lavender, slightly touched at the edge with gold and fawn, base netted greenish-gold on white. All divisions broad and rounded. Charming.”

Note: Probably a Lémon seedling intro’d by Van Houtte’s nursery, per the 1939 checklist.
