From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: GILDED - 35" E-M. D157-109: I DO X (CEASE-FIRE x SKY HOOKS) * Light blue-gray S. with edges touched with suffused yellow; light blue-gray F. with yellow gold at hafts extending halfway down edges which then changes into a suffused yellow wire rim; gray beards heavily tipped yellow-orange and short blue horns on the spring flowers.* Very differen tand it can be very pretty and gilded looking - but even to my eye it isn't always verypretty. Both the coloring and form vary somewhat and the horns are usually so short as to be insignificant. It is an excellent grower, bloomer and rebloomer even in years when most aren't. Excellent stalks always with 7-12 buds and the flowers are pretty good, never really poor or really great; loads of fall stalks starting in September or October and could be an exciting parent. $25.00
