Positive Todd_Boland On Dec 19, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This is one of the most popular of the dark violet-blue Siberians and rightly so. The flowers are very ruffled and the standards and held horizontal rather than vertical. This gives the flowers are very flat-look which is uncommon among the Siberians. Plants are vigorous and floriferous and relatively short, reaching about 22". The foliage is mostly vertical so plants have a stiff, spiky appearance.
