From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2009: MAGICAL MOMENT (Black 09) TB Early-Midseason 34” (86 cm). There is nothing harsh or garish about this Magical Moment. Each enchanted fiber is woven together into a mystical creation. Heavily ruffled and laced flowers have light mauve pink standards overlaid with a fine network of darker texture veins. Gently arched falls are milk glass white blending imperceptibly to pale lilac margins. Soft white beards nestle below flesh pink styles. Vigorous, healthy plants produce show stalks with 3 branches and 7-8 buds. Splendid parent for blue and pink combinations. Sdlg. L27B: Lotus Land X (Intimidator x Fogbound.) BONUS.
