References

From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2012: ADVANTAGE (Black ‘12) TB Early-Midseason 35” (89cm). For those working with rebloomers and broken color, Advantage should supply some worthy genes to advance your project. All its parents rebloom. Strong vigorous growth produces stalks having 2-3 branches and 7-8 buds. It begs to be paired with Wizard of Odds which is half rebloom blood. It is producing seedlings with heavily saturated color. Sdlg Q16BR: (End of Summer x Mariposa Skies) X I’m Back. $50.00.
