From AIS Bulletin #280 January 1991 Introducing MIDSUMMER HAPPINESS 85/95F, Diploid, 6 falls, 39", EM-LM. The inner falls of the 7" flowers are almost as wide as the 4" outer ones. Lovely ruffling is enhanced by marked tufting of the styles and stamen petaloids giving exquisite form. Outstanding also is the color (RHS-95 Cto D) closest to true light blue that we have seen, with clean white lines extending to edges of falls. 1 branch and 3 buds, $35, Seaways Gardens/Pope's Perennials.
