From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2006: DRESSED TO KILL - TB, 38" (97 cm), Midseason-Late. Stepping into the night, she's Dressed To Kill; visually, for sure; literally, perhaps. Stick around and see. Dressed To Kill presents a provocative melding of softer neutral tones with strong, bold colors. Standards are soft mink gray. Centers and moderate band around edges have a subtle greenish overlay and veining. Ruffled falls are pulsing black-cherry that blend to red grape toward margins and finally to whitish grape at edges. Unusual beards mirror the flower colors with 3 layers, white, purple, and smokey yellow. Sometimes there is an iridescent grape center fall stripe. Sure to win, show stalks have 3 branches and 8-9 buds. Robust growth provides pleasing clumps of healthy, blue-green foliage. Sdlg. K225A: Cranberry Sauce X High Class. $50.00.
