Alchemist was one of my very first Jim Murphy intros. I had decided to expand my mostly nice andfull, round shapes with something daring and, for me, very different. Alchemist is a deep purple cascade flower. I wanted late bloomers, but unfortunately it never bloomed late for me, so after a few years it left my garden.

But, really, not blooming late here was its only fault. Otherwise, it would have stayed.
