I bought this cultivar from Jim Biaglow shortly after it was introduced and grew it for many, many years. What a spectacular clump it makes! I wish I still grew it. Huge lavender purple flowers with appliqué throat. I remember the impressive scapes having very nice branching and lots of buds. I used to visit Jim's garden every summer multiple times while he was still living, and there were often many other visitors there as well. Phantasy Sapphire, although unlike Jim's other wide-petaled, ruffled, edged seedlings and introductions, always drew lots of favorable comments.

In my garden, I planted Spiritual Corridor next to it because the first time I saw it at Jim's they were planted side by side, and they make a wonderful combination.
