TB 40″ L
From Lloyd Austin’s catalog for 1960: “Most ‘unusual’ Oncobred I ever bloomed! Has an almost believe-it-or-not combination of hafts prominently marked with broad olive veins on petals of pale lilac-blue. It is 40″ tall, with excellent branching, characteristics seldom associated with Oncobreds. Usually three long branches and one short one. Unlike most Oncobreds, it blooms late. Good pollen.”
