This is the fastest multipling historic we own. Lovely unusual coloring on it.

Registered by Caroline DeForest in 1966, Bayberry Candle was not introduced into commerce until 1969. This is one of those colors that as a greenish, brownish yellow, blends very easily with other yellows and browns. One of my favorites!
