From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2008: LADY OF THE NIGHT (Black 08) BB Late-Very Late 27” (69cm). This lovely BB has it all, strong growth, spectacular show stalks, great proportion, and superb form and color. This Lady Of The Night is a class act! Satiny dark purple standards flow into ruffled, velvety, dark purple-black falls that are slightly lighter toward margins. A fine white spray pattern over the hafts sets off the bright gold-yellow beards that hint at the red-orange to coral pink beards appearing in the next generation. Lady Of The Night is an exceptional parent for quality BBs. She has 4 wellspaced branches and is at the top of my must have list. Notice the IB, Red Zinger, in the parentage. Sdlg. M91B: ((Tom Johnson x Red Zinger) x Romantic Evening) X Dance Gypsy. $35.00.
