From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: HEART OF ICE* 34" M. LEDA'S LOVER X (SKY HOOKS x CONDOTTIERE) Blue-white S. flushed blue-violet at base; blue-white F. with green-gold hafts and a suffused violet streak down the centers; blue beards tipped yellow in throat. Lots of these sibs and cousins have rebloomed and quite a few have had blue beards?! ! This has great blue beards on a very pretty and different pastel flower of very nice ruffled form with round petals. Great stalks too and it's been an excellent performer in every way including giving lots of rebloom. Usually starts in October but last year it rebloomed in July and August too! Very fertile both ways! $30.00
