(DuMont) – Jap. – White, or Orchid. “Wyoming I got at Wyoming, Ill., 10 miles north of Princeville. I believe it is a chance seedling. A Jap, orchid shade, midseason. I called it Jap. From Mr. Edward Auten, Jr., August, 1955. “Mr. W. G. DuMont, Des Moines, Ia., was born in Wyoming, Ill., and he started calling it Wyoming, so I followed suit. I don’t know when all this happened. Mr. DuMont is buried at Wyoming. He was a President of the American Peony Society.”
