HIST: Indian Hills

From: Mike Lowe <mlowe@worldiris.com>

In an excellent article on the Louisville hybridizer, Henry Grant, Bob
Strohman quotes current catalog sources as describing Indian Hills (Grant
'35) as being dark blue.

Schreiner's catalog from 1937 describes Indian Hills as follows: "A rich
true-purple, somewhat similar to 'Magenta' in color but deeper, and,
incidently, about three times as large. Blooms are of good substance and of
fine oval form. A thrifty grower and good propagator."

A picture of what I grow as 'Indian Hills' would seem to agree with the
Schreiner description -- C.L. B7D not withstanding.

As an aside, to answer a question in the above article: THE DARB, gelding,
foaled 1930, by ST. GERMANS, took a 4th in the 1933 Belmont Stakes.

Cheers, keep warm!
