From Aitken’s catalog, 2017: MOONSTONE MARVEL (Sib) (Aitken '17) SIB, 36” (91.4 cm) M. & extended bloom into August. Branched stems carry 4 or 5 buds with more on summer bloom. This plant blooms again in September but for this month only the buds are down in the foliage. Good increase - a “clumper”. The flowers are rounded and overlapping. Standards are flat and ruffled. There appears to be a soft yellow layer within the petals overlaid by a soft sky blue layer predominantly around the edges—thus the “marvel”. The signals are mid yellow blending out onto the fall and submerging under the light blue. There are burgundy hairline veins, deep in the signal that trickle out to mid falls. This plant is a fertile diploid. The cross is line bred for extended bloom. (Dip) Sdlg. # 12-1A: (03SIB-1: (Reddy or Not x Hello Yellow) X ‘Haleakala’) SKU: 17sib121. $35.00.
