From my Garden, 2007
I got "Francis of Assisi" last summer, as a double-fan division, and it bloomed a few weeks later! Photo taken in July 2007.
an amazing flower. holds it's color even in our blazing NC sun
a side view
it seems to lose that purple 'shimmer' in the sun but still a beauty
Francis Of Assisi
