Designer Label is listed as a pink flower. Photo in the catalog showed a pink pink but in my area SW Missouri it is more a pinkish lavender.
Nice ruffles and somewhat serrated edge.
. Did have 6 increase this first spring 2012 just since planted fall 2011.
Flower is nice but reminds me a lot of old Lace Jabot. but i am sure better plant habit maybe and more flowers than Jabot as it was 1970's or early 80's flower
