Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said:BOOTY CALL
05 ML 33 SE
HER MAJESTIES WIZARD X DEN OF INEQUITY
Selected to appease those capricious late night impulses, BOOTY CALL offers immediate no-risk gratification right in the privacy of your own garden. These naughty black-violet flowers shamelessly exhibit a peerless smooth satin-like finish, and are exceptionally sunfast for one of the darkest colors in the garden. The iniquitous ebony color is centered by a small citrus heart, while the petals are edged in the finest white thread. Consistently flat, these 4-1/2" blossoms are round and symmetrical with blunt segments. The flower scapes are stout and erect with well proportioned three-way branching, best suited for the front of the bordello. Lustily fertile both ways, BOOTY CALL is being used in both my large and small flowered lines for its superlative color.


Booty Call was not pictured in Curt's 2005 catalog.
