From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: WONDROUS - 36" M. C87-10: RISQUE PINK X MOONLIT * Deep pink S.; pink-white F. with lacy pink edges; bright red beards and blue-white horns. This is wondrous and a wondrous performer - here and everywhere reports have come back from so far! From one rhizome sent as a guest to the Phoenix convention came back 29 huge "potatoes" of increases (6 times as many as any of the others)!!! Wondrous flowers, both the coloring and form, with ruffles, lace, super substance and very consistent horns! Wondrous show stalks! A sib to PAGAN PINK and LATE LIFTOFF. Quite a cross! Have got to use it - especially with heavily laced pinks! $30.00
