Negative RobertWM On Nov 6, 2010, RobertWM from Clawson, MI wrote:

As another gardener said, it's more of a maroon instead of purple but for me, it's quite a poor grower and shy bloomer. I have it next to "Malaysian Monarch" which is a great grower and bloomer, so the contrast between its performance and "Super Purple"s is especially apparent. I doubt that I'll devote yard space to this one much longer.

Holds its dark color well in my garden. Though name says purple, it looks more blackish/maroonish to me.
