From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: SPARKPLUG (SOB) 13" E34-106: THIRD WORLD X JEWEL BABY. Medium light blue-violet S.; bright medium reddish violet F, with white stripes radiating out near horizontally from big bushy double wide frosty blue beards. How it sparkles--electrically! especially when at its best with several flowers open at once per clump and big clumps it does make--quickly! Catches your eye and won't let go!--at its best. Always throws up a bunch of rebloom stalks here all at once, in November --probably too late for much of the country most years, alas. Should be super in mild enough climates as it tries to put up more stalks here during the winter whenever we get warm spells. $10.00
