From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: HIGH HO SILVER - 36" E-M. D89-102: I DO X MOONLIT. Silvery gray to silver-white touched tan-gold at hafts; very light gray beards tipped gold. Huge spreading flowers of full blocky form, ruffled with good substance on tremendous show stalks - spring, summer and fall! They're thick, straight and strong and carry 7-10 buds in the spring and 12-18 buds the rest of the time! Bound for glory! Phenomenal strength and phenomenal reblooming ability usually blooming on stalk after stalk here - from July 'til heavy frost!! Having something like this show up now and then from a cross you wouldn't really expect it from! What a thrill!! and what a parent it will surely prove to be!! $35.00.
