From Marx Gardens catalog, 1958: MORNING MISCHIEF (Marx 1957) Each $7.50. The immense appeal of this new single lies in the subtle contrast between its form and its coloration. The color is a sanded blue violet, shading from light (Bishop) blue around the falls to a somewhat deeper light violet along the edges of the petals. The smooth semi-flaring falls give the flower a quietly graceful air, emphasized by a white hair-line edge on standards and petals. But all this is topped by the small, perky, very upright standards of reddish, nearly hyacinth violet, and they seem to convey the impression of great fun. It's fun, too, to have it around. Superb substance. 9-inch flowers on 40-inch stems. Two to three-way branching. Midseason to late. Pictured on page 8.
