Re: HIST: Indian Hills

<<  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.>>

My INDIAN HILLS is a tailored true grape-drink purple, standards somewhat
lighter, with a white beard that is orange in the throat, and light style
crests. It is quite tall and has a lot of presence, purple-wise. Looking at a
picture of it even as we speak.
