From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2015: TICKLE MY FANCY (Black ‘15) TB Midseason-Very Late 38” (97cm). ‘Tickle My Fancy’ is another advancement in my effort to create plicatas with good winter hardiness and healthy plants. ‘Out of the Dark’ incorporated the old Sass luminata, ‘Pretty Pansy’, to help provide those traits. White standards are widely plicata banded dark purple and sanded over their centers. Mid yellow falls have narrow red plum plicata bands. White luminata type patches are lined dark violet blue around burnt orange beards. Strong growth and increase. Numerous stalks with 3 branches plus spur and 9-11 buds. Much later than normal bloom for most plicatas. Named for my sweet husky, Fancy, who still surveys her paradise from high on the hill at Mid-America. Sdlg. S31B: Out of the Dark X ((Tangled Webx (Different Design sib x I’ve Got Rhythm)) x Out of the Dark). $60.00.
