From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2012: WINK AND A SMILE (Black ‘12) TB Early-Midseason 36” (91cm). Duplicate the description of Blue Seduction, change the color from blue to maroon and you have Wink and a Smile. The accent is again on clump and garden effect which doesn't preclude cutting one of its show stalks to enter in a show. The diversity of the parentage was amply demonstrated by the diversity in this cross. Sdlg. Q33A: sib to Blue Seduction. $50.00.
