From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: LIKE A CHARM (IB) 22" M. Dl44-l: THRICE BLESSED X ( ACTRESS x SKY HOOKS). Light lemon yellow S.; white F. overlaid bright yellow from hafts to end of beard; blue beards tipped yellow and blue-violet horns. What a bright little charmer this is!-so crisp and clean! The showy beards and horns are the perfect finishing touches to a delightful creation. Very pretty lightly ruffled flowers, even when the standards sometimes cup open. Wonderfully fragrant, very vigorous and it rebloomed here last summer in June and July! Good pod fertility. $20.00
