Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said: ADVENTURES IN PARADISE
98 M 32 SE
In the spirit of Adam Troy and the enchantment of sailing the South Pacific, ADVENTURES IN PARADISE provides yet another example of the magic found in the TIDAL POOL line. The most ruffled and “voluptuous” of my lavenders thus far, these fully formed 6" flowers gently reflex and flare with exquisite grace. The color is an unusual and alluring orchid-lilac, softly toned with a lighter watermark and refreshing green heart. The healthy plants display erect, although slender scapes with three and four-way branching. ADVENTURES IN PARADISE is moderately fertile either way. A special cultivar that once seen, will leave you longing for Samoa.
