8-9 buds. A vigorous grower with great substance. Grows up to 40-41 inches tall. The photos doesn't do it justice. M,L. Good branching with semi flaring falls.

A wonderful rimmed luminata plicata. A perfect name for this one. Tall and powerful, as well as vigorous. Lavender standards with purple - lavender midribs. Falls are lavender purple with near white veining, and a deeper purple 1/4 - 1/2 inch rim.

Parentage: Seedling # SHFOF 02-15. (Sapphire Hills x Pencil Sketch) x Flights of Fancy. (Can be found at Nola's Iris Garden, in CA. and Rocky Top Garden in Tenn.)
