Beautiful Flower-planted last summer, nice and healthy this year and blooming away! Not as dark as I would have liked, but beautiful anyway.

Blooms mid season for me as well.

In NE Ohio, this has not been a very vigorous grower. The color for me has been a grape purple. On a good day, it's beautiful. On a dewy morning, the sun burns spots on the flower. It took a long time to find a perfect flower to photograph.
