From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2013: MEN ARE FROM MARS (Black ‘13) TB Midseason-Late 40” (102cm). Men may be from Mars but this down to earth creation has fabulous flowers, stalks and clumps. Clumps are some of the healthiest and most floriferous in the garden. You’ll be glad you have it. Note the gold veining in upper 1/3 of the standards. With Class Clown as one parent, it should be of interest to those breeding rebloomers. Sdlg. R77G: Class Clown X (Ransom Note x What’s My Line). $50.00.
