From AIS Bulletin #180, January 1966. Introducing EGO (McGarvey 1965) 32". This plant has very compact, deeply ruffled, flaring blue flowers. The falls are highlighted by an attractive white blaze and haft pattern. Produces a fine clump and has bloomed consistently since 1962. It was numbered in 1963 (63-4-6 : White Swirl X McG Med-B-Lt-b-Sty). The pollen parent calDe frolD Gatineau x Caesar's Brother. NET $30.00. Ego and Super Ego have flowers which differ from those of other known Siberians but which are appropriate to the species. Both bloom from mid-season to late and both are of the right height and growing characteristics to make very significant contributions to the middle or even the foreground of the mixed border. These are not plants which will he lost in the border. Though both are alike in being unusual they are not at all alike in appearance. Old Brook Gardens.
