From AIS Bulletin #269 April 1988 Introducing CURTAIN UP (TB), 34", EM-ML. I Do X Sky Hooks. S. greenish gold slightly blended pale violet on the outside, pale violet inside. F. pale violet blending to green gold hafts and ruffled edges which curl up to reveal bright yellow reverse; yellow beards. Very good, very lovely flowers that make me think of a theatre curtain starting to gather and rise, the way the fall edges curl up. Very fragrant, too, and its rebloom has started as early as July here. $35.00. Moonshine Gardens.
