From Melrose Gardens catalog for 1974: “Here is the super plic: Falls so wide they overlap at the haft, standards so full they almost obscure the deep violet style crests and a flower that is so much larger than most. Need we say more, except for the color? The precise borders on both standards and falls are blue violet. So that is certainly not unordinary, but the cleanliness of the white ground and the consistently narrow border on BOTH standards and falls is. Robust plant.”
