From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2010: BARGAIN HUNTER (Black ‘10) TB Midseason-Late 39” (99cm). Bargain Hunter gives plenty of value for the money. It makes a startling clump filled with well branched stalks having 3 branches and 8-9 buds. Crisp white flowers are touched with purple lines over the lower half of falls. Bright orange beards are highlighted by hafts brushed with yellow. Substance is much sturdier than many of this type. Accent here is on the smashingly beautiful clumps and healthy, vigorous plants. Sdlg. N171AA: (On the House x Prince George) X Brave Face. BONUS.
