From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2007: Very pretty, moderately ruffled flowers have medium violet-blue standards that blend paler toward edges. Plush, dark violet-blue falls have narrow pale violet rims. The entire haft is plum with muted white mottled rays around vivid, dark tangerine-orange beards. From its parent, Paul Black, it receives a strong, spicy fragrance. Superb show stalks. Terrific breeder for darks with orange beards. Sdlg TW179B: Paul Black X (Tom Johnson x Romantic Evening) 1 $50.00.
