    Curt Hanson's 1998 Crintonic Garden Catalog said: TROUBLED SLEEP

    98 EM 36 SE
    From the moment I first saw this daylily in the seedling patch, I knew I’d hit the jackpot! As I stood spellbound in the allure of its ineffable qualities, I had to pinch myself to realize this is no dream. Here was a new purple with all the qualities that I can take to the bank. A triple crown of superlatives, TROUBLED SLEEP has “Stout Medal” written all over it. The best thing about this paradigm of beauty has to be the color, a rich and sultry shade that redefines Bordeaux purple. This fabulous color is accented by a deeper eyezone and chartreuse green throat! Better yet, this is one gorgeous form, voluptuous and full with wide ruffled “state of the art” segments which open perfectly regardless of the weather. And, best of all is the plant, ideal in every respect, outstanding vigor with lush green blemish free foliage and ramrod stiff scapes that display the “show bench” three and four-way branching to perfection! But what really makes TROUBLED SLEEP so special is that I have enough plants to list for spring delivery! Amazing but true! Can it get better than this? Yet, perhaps my enthusiasm to sell this flower has clouded my judgment. Worse yet is that my attempts to sedulously cultivate respect for my work will seem egotistical, insincere and specious. Equally as troubling would be that this arrogant and bloated verbiage be taken all too seriously, but what disturbs me most is that TROUBLED SLEEP is so fertile that anyone can set a ton of seed on it and in the right hands my entire purple program could be quickly eclipsed! Maybe I’m making a big mistake in releasing it at all! This is like a bad dream and worst of all, it is already January and everyone else has their catalogs out, and I dread that by the time you read this you’ll have no money left!
