This strong growing plant is a pleasure to have in your flower garden. The blooms are the darkest and richest color and show off the dark green big leaf foliage in fantastic contrast. Blooms are big and globe-like, perfect for cutting. Bloom color is deep pink to deep blue but easily kept as purple in acidic soils with a little phosphorus or garden lime. Bred in the USA, this is a larger cousin of the popular Merritt's Supreme.
