Positive MikenMyrtle On Aug 10, 2007, MikenMyrtle from Myrtle Beach, SC wrote:

"Carnival Ride" was mediocre in its first year, but in its second year it grew multiple new fans and produced many flowers on extremely strong, tall stalks. The flower is a colorful and different design. Vigorous and beautiful--I would definitely endorse "Carnival Ride."
