From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS - 36" M. Dl64-105: VIOLET MIRACLE (CEASE-FIRE x SKY HOOKS). A medium deep purple bitone with violet beards tipped yellow in throat.* A dark regal sib of MISTY TWILIGHT's. Large, well formed, ruffled flowers on tall, strong, perfect show stalks -always! What regal carriage! and with 10-13 buds each it's a long show each time it blooms. AND bloom it does, lots of stalks in the spring then always plenty more in the fall. Sometimes starts in September, more often in October and never here with snaky twisty stalks many rebloomers will give at times. The vigor I've come to expect from VIOLET MIRACLE offspring. $30.00.
