The original Jack was a prankster & so is this Jack Horner, for while flowers produce mostly stunning long needle-like violet horns, up to 1-1/2" long, very frequently it is up to pranks & will send out horns ending in small frilled spoons or fairly large flounces. Fascinates everyone who follows 1ts interesting & unpredictable behavior thru the long blooming season. Standards creamy wh1te, gl1stening & ruffled; falls lilac cream, edged light yellow, with bright yellow hafts. Profuse pollen. (Unicorn X Palomino). Regularly $7.50; on $10 order $5.25; on $25 order $3.95
