  • Posted by Joy (Kalama, Wa. - Zone 8b) on Dec 3, 2011 3:46 PM concerning plant:
    Greyed violet, purple layered eyezone, frag. A very unusual flower with numerous gradients of color in the eyezone. An unusual Spider form which is much sought after and a valued breeding plant. Bright greenish colored throat. The foliage habit is variable, sometimes disappearing completely in winter and other times not, and the flower color is a little changeable too but always beautiful.
