Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said: AS THE WORLD TURNS
03 EM 36 SE
LIFE ON MARS X STOP YOUR SOBBING
Arrogant and bold, this dissolute rogue is ready for prime time! Not just another daytime drama, AS THE WORLD TURNS is the real thing. The flashy color is a pretentious raspberry rose with a soft blush watermark around the chartreuse green throat. These billowy and gently creped 6" flowers are very full with enough flaring to avoid formality. The three inch plus petals are ruffled and edged in a fine white border. The tall erect scapes display wide three-way branching. AS THE WORLD TURNS is fertile both ways and further vindicates the exciting potential of LIFE ON MARS.
