TB 36″ M R7L

From Indian Spring Farms catalog for 1931: “A charming, soft rose-pink flower, with falls the brighter in color.”

From Treholme Gardens catalog for 1932: “S. white shaded delicate rose pink; F. slightly darker; light yellow beard; low well branched stalks. Fragrant. 36 in.”

From Linwood Iris Gardens for 1936: “Delightful soft wild rose pink of fine form and quality. Medium height. One of our loveliest pinks. Exquisite fragrance. Hardy.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1937: “A pink of upmost beauty and distinction. To see it is to want it. Petals are edged silver.”

From Robert Wayman’s catalog of 1939: “34” Early. Sweet orange-blossom fragrance. An exquisite flower of fine form, in an unusual soft orchid-pink tone and very free flowering. For a delightful garden mass, or as a cut flower, this is my choice of all the pinks and if I could have but one inexpensive  pink,  I am sure it would be Rheingauperle. Anyone of refined taste will immediately fall in love with this real gem when they see it in flower. Now plentiful enough to be sold at a very low price .15″.
