From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2014: DIE LAUGHING (Black ‘14) TB Midseason-Late 36” (91cm). Yes, you’ll ‘Die Laughing’ at all the crazy variations in these mixed up blooms. Some have great variation in contrast and amount of color breaking while others are much more subtle. All are quite pleasing. ‘Die Laughing’ is an expansion of my broken color line created to provide stronger growth, better branched and budded stalks than is the norm for broken color types. The cross of (‘Variegated Wonder’ X ‘Die Laughing’) gave a variegated flower and foliage seedling! Sdlg. R107C: Claim to Fame X (Oklahoma Centennial x (Coral Dreams x Pioneer Woman)). $55.00.
