Planted fall 2011. bloomed 2012 Lots of ruffles.BIG blooms Good placement ... but the colors arent tops
Light Apricot- standards.Dark orchid falls are stirrated from haft to tip which brakes up the dark orchid color .Pale pink edge. Heavy haft lines make it look old school in color. It was a bonus that i will probably give away if it doesnt start to grow on me.Too many really pretty ones out there to settle.
