Positive Todd_Boland On Feb 2, 2005, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This selection is as good for its foliage as its flowers. The blooms are cherise-pink. The spring foliage is deep purple and as they age, become green with a distinct purple cast. A great plant for the whole summer season.
