| From Schreiner's catalog, 2016: SHADOWED MOON (Schreiner 2016) L. 35”. $50.00. Shadowed Moon, well-named, is a novelty in its smoky-yellow-green class. Its bold color makes one long to see it near other strong colors in the garden. The overall effect is one of intrigue, bringing to mind a Bengal Tiger. Or a Shadowed Moon. As our photo below shows, Shadowed Moon is well-formed, with flaring, corrugated falls having a swatch of purple, and earthen colored hafts. Ramping up the oomph are bold orange beards and a bright yellow on the lower portion of the falls. The pale yellow standards are characterized by varying intensities of muted colors -brown and purple. Seedling #TT436-B.
