From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: SILVER SCREEN - 34" E- M. D158- 147 IMMORTALITY X (CEASE- FIRE x SKY HOOKS). Silvery white with white beards tipped yellow. Sparks are going to start flying in seedling patches around the country during the summer and fall when some of these sibs become "kissing cousins" with some of the LEDA'S LOVER/CONDOTTIERE side of the family! This has big ruffled flaring flowers of excellent form and substance on very good stalks-very much like WHITE REPRISE in all respects including vigor but it tends to bloom earlier here. A sib to SECOND WIND . $30.00
