The release of Summer Jewel Lavender has more or less eliminated the demand for this strain. We're growing it this year, probably for the last time. They are tall and rangy with a wild beauty, and have become perennial and almost woody for us here. Great color, in any case.

I have seen pics of both this one and Summer Jewel Lavender at FBTS website. Threy look to be different shades of lavender. I kind of like the look of this one- maybe I will be able to find seeds of it if FBTS doesn't carry it next year, since it would be an annual for me.
