From the 1965 Bay View Gardens Catalog: The standards of this new creation are tightly held and ruffled; the white standards have a slight blue cast. The medium amethyst-blue falls are semi-flaring and lightly ruffled. The hafts are extremely broad and sport a pale yellow beard. Mount Eden was the home of Wm. Mohr and the name of the high school where I teach.
