TB 45″ E

From Carl Salbach’s catalog for 1939: “Standards frosty gold, falls coral rose – very close to being a giant Mary Geddes. The main difference in coloring of the two is that the standards of Portland are slightly lighter gold and the falls are more of a self color, lacking the gold haft lining.

“Or, to describe it another way, one could say that it is a highly colored Rameses, for it has bright colors, while Rameses is more on the pearly type. Showy, standing out clear across the garden – and tall enough to give it unusual garden value. Mid-season to late. 45-inch.”
