From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: HER ROYAL HIGHNESS - 37" M. DB0-103: WELL ENDOWED X VIOLET MIRACLE. Deep, bright magenta-violet S.; the F. are an iridescent blend of deep magenta-violet changing to rich redbrown at the hafts and has a small blue-violet blaze just below the beards which are old gold on a violet base. In the bright sunlight when this is at its best it literally shimmers and sparkles with iridescent inner fires and it's diamond dusted. No dowdy old queen, she! Very large well ruffled flowers of very good form on tall, thick show stalks. An extremely strong healthy grower too and may prove to be an everbloomer. Certainly an early rebloomer giving lots of stalks between June and September. Another must - use! $35.00
