Violet blue self with creamy green throat. This is a dark purple slender star with a medium to light yellow throat inside a darker, chevron-shaped eyezone. Three year old clump will bloom profusely over two months, its slender star-shaped flowers presented in an out-facing manner. Limited pod fertility. Pollen was accepted in 30% of the crosses undertaken.
