Very large head like AA size. Wow peppermint patty color, like Christmas in July. Lots of bloom but doesn't last in vase like most large blooms. Have some issues with dominate purple gene shows up as mutations. Some tubers will produce all solid purple blooms. Watch out and have to toss out or seperate bad colors. Still a keeper. Been growing it for the last 8 yrs.
