From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2012: ARE YOU CRAZY (Black ‘12) TB - small flowered - Early Midseason 33” (84cm). Some people would say yes, but I continue with my small flowered TB project. As with most new projects, it will require time to develop and refine the results. Are You Crazy would be very much at home in the BB class if it were a little shorter. Show stalks have 3 branches plus spur and 8-9 buds. Sdlg. N233A: ((Tom Johnson x Red Zinger) x Romantic Evening) X Dolce. $35.00.
