From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: WINESAP - 33" E-M. D49-102: VIOLET MIRACLE X HELL'S FIRE. Deep wine-red S.; near wine-black F.; red-black beards . Quality reblooming blacks - a wide open field! also smooth hafted reblooming reds . This should be a big help in both directions and it's a willing podder, at least. Nice medium sized tailored flowers with domed standards and flaring falls on good shorter stalks. A good grower and it's a very reliable rebloomer here - in lateOctober or early November. $30.00
