INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1954 René Cayeux & Cie Catalog: (Translated from French) A bicolor immediately noticed by the sharp opposition of its two hues. S. gleaming white gold. F. velvety violet edged with a stripe of azure-white. Beautiful flower well-proportioned and giving a super decorative effect, either in the garden or in clumps.
