I love anything purple, in flowers that is. I have Purple King and have ordered Purple Prince. And also I think Lily Nook has a variety with the word purple in it. Of course none of these are true purple, much like the near black ones like Dimention etc. This one seems to have a good purple coloration.
After 4 years gardening here and ordering many plants and bulbs,I never trust the pictures. I can ajust them in Photoshop to be sure I wont be disapointed . Especially if the garden sites photo looks dark as far as leaves go.
I believe they ajust the contrast to be sure the purples are dark.
I am that unsuspecting gardner.I ordered a Midnight Lily form a DG favorite lily grower. No way was it as dark in my garden.
It was moved to the "pink lily" section and away from the yelow lilies it was planted with.
Just my quirkiness but I am not fond of pink and yellow together in any form.
Some garden centers buy photos from a central directory.
Thats why when you google an image ,the same image shows up under different vendors and webpages.
I dont know if the fiddling with the image goes on when the website builder enters the image or the photo is dark because the photographer was told to make the image look dark purple.
