From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1943: “A big heavy textured flower in smoothly blended shades of soft tawny salmon. There is a rich gold beard and odd soft brown areas surmounting the falls. Dr. Kleinsorge nicknamed this “Brown Shoulders” but the name finally chosen is in honor of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the State of Oregon. This distinct blend of rich colors, much deeper and more vivid than such things as Sandalwood, Far West, or Fiesta, ranks along Old Parchment, Tobacco Road and Aztec Copper for sheer individuality. Medium in height, three feet or slightly over, with heavy stems, large flowers; very late.”
