A very intense purple flower. It does want to flop some. I usually tie it up around itself in a ring. Comes back every year for me in my zone (8). Mine was grown from seed.

@duane456

Thanks for sharing your info. The photo you took (see above) for the database, it looks like the stems are standing vertically, is it when the growing season progresses that you have to tie the plant to a ring to keep from flopping over?

Beautiful purple color.

Yes , they start out vertical and then start leaning later.
