From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2015: AFFAIR TO REMEMBER (Black '15) TB Early-Late 37" (94 cm) The picture doesn’t do it justice. The form is tighter and fuller than the picture indicates. 'Affair to Remember' is a reddder version of its parent, 'Montmartre' and has sparkling, bright yellow laced edges. Show stalks have 4 well-spaced branches and 9-10 buds. Growth is strong, vigorous and hardy as one would expect from 'Master Plan' and 'Rock Star', grandparents of 'Love and Devotion'. An abundance of stalks insures a memorable performance in your garden. Sdlg. S62A: Love and Devotion X Montmartre. $60.00.
