Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said:BEYOND THUNDERDOME
97 M 36 SE
((((ROYAL HERITAGE / BENCHMARK) x HIGH LAMA) x (CHINESE TEMPLE / ROYAL VIKING)) x PRINCESS BLUE EYES) x NOSFERATU
Resplendent in all the blather and bombast the name might imply, BEYOND THUNDERDOME exemplifies the munificent attributes of its famous father. Perhaps the most dramatic purple of this past season, this imposing selection is presented with total confidence. The color is a deep violet burgundy merlot self with a small chartreuse throat. The impressive large flowers are broad, flat and recurved, exhibiting a sculptural presence through subtle throat pleats and superlative waxy substance. Plants are large and robust with extremely thick, erect scapes that display three and four widely spaced lateral branches. Easily fertile both ways and possesses an elite and most sedulously cultivated pedigree. HM 02


Really lovely sculpted pleated purple. Consistently pleated when I grew it. One I wish I still grew! Loved it!
