From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2010: ONE OF A KIND (Black ‘10) TB Midseason-Late 35” (89cm.) Standards with wildly contrasting veins etched over them have been emerging for several generations now. 'One of a Kind' is the boldest and showiest of them and definitely lives up to its name. Chalky lilac standards have red plum veins shot outward to red plum and glittering brassy gold edges. Heavily ruffled, velvety, black cherry falls have gold beards set in a nest of white veins which draws the eye upward to the unique standards. Strong stalks have 3 branches and 9-11 buds. This is just the beginning of crazily colored and patterned standards. Be sure to be in line for your 'One of a Kind'. Sdlg. O177A: Magic Masquerade X ((Sensual Elegance x Romantic Evening) x Snowed In). $60.00.
