From Adamgrove catalog, 1997: TRIFLE (Hager, 96) Cream to ivory to pale yellow with a sultry, lightly feathered spot of reddish violet on each fall. Prolific display of blossoms. Not as strident as its pugnacious sibling, BUGSY, preferring instead a softer approach to early spring color. Place the small-statured plant somewhere that a TRIFLE won't be overlooked. Plan on being generous with it, because you'll have lots of TRIFLES in a short time. [Bugsy sib) $10.00
