From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2009: MAMBO ITALIANO (Black 09) TB Midseason-Very Late 37” (94 cm). It is a fantastical song popularized by Rosemary Clooney in 1954 with a fun, whimsical remake by Bette Midler in 2003. Mambo Italiano exhibits all the spice and color of the song. Large, heavily ruffled and lightly laced flowers have standards of bright rosy claret with narrow claret plum bands. Expansive falls are rich, iridescent rose claret with brick red hafts and narrow rims. Thick auburn gold beards burn from the heart. Strong show stalks, having 3 branches and 7-8 buds, emerge from vigorous clumps. Sdlg. N52A: Regimen X Rustle of Spring. $50.00.
