From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2005: MAKING MEMORIES - TB, 41" (104 cm), Midseason-Late. Making Memories is similar in color to Ruth Black but has a much taller stalk. Luscious coral-peach standards blend outward to butter-gold margins with darker peach styles tucked in between. Falls are white at the end of orange beards and shade to medium orchid and then to smoky rose margins. Hafts are darker smoky rose. Large, open ruffles are just right for these larger flowers. Show stalks have 4 branches plus spur with 10-12 buds. Strong, disease resistant growth is a big plus. Thank you Sissy Core for this name and all the memories you and Carl have helped make. Sdlg. G500A: Ruth Black X Goodbye Heart. $45.00.
