From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2006: WISH UPON A STAR - SDB, 13" (33 cm), Early-Mid-Late. The night is dark, punctuated only by the bright stars. Go ahead, make your wish. Dark red-purple standards are infused darker blue up ribs and finely veined outward. Black-purple falls are margined slightly lighter with shooting stars of plush chenille white beards streaming into the night. Most dark flowers disappear into the landscape but not Wish Upon A Star. Because of the starkly contrasted white beards, it makes a bold satement from across the yard. Intersting parent with tangerine and plicata on both sides. This is another SDB that makes a big clump filled with myriads of bloom stalks. Sdlg.!L326B: Zap sib X Neutron. $18.00.
