Years ago when I was in high school and lived in New Jersey, I grew JUNE
MEREDITH (Muhlestein, 1954). Though memory can play tricks, I recall it as
being a clear, true light pink, not at all "washed out". I did not mention
JM in my reply to Mike U. only because I am not aware of any current source
for it.
