| From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2006: CANADIAN KISSES - SDB, 14" (36 cm), Early-Midseason. Thank you to my friend Gary Shurtz for this name which is his pet name for those cold storms sent to us by our Northern neighbor. Of all my introductions, Canadian Kisses makes the most beautiful, full clump of them all. It is also the first truly blue plicata. White standards have very wide medium blue plicata bands and greenish blue ribs. Pure white falls have more solid medium blue plicata bands that are wide at hafts and narrowing as they move to the outer edges. There are small plum veined areas high on the hafts. White beards brushed yellow are the perfect complement. Sdlg. L277A: Glamour Cat sib X Dynamic sib. $18.00
