The lavender part of the double edge is definitely lavender. Maybe slightly greyish lavender. The bloom is also a bluish pink. It looks wonderful from a short distance. Nice substance. Not fully open until after midday but still looking great in the evening. Our very mild weather and copious watering are no doubt helping all that. Here it is wonderful to have blooms before the spring equinox. It is in part shade.
