Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said:ALGEBRA OF DARKNESS
99 M 25 SE
Geometrically reconfiguring the quantum potential of tomorrow’s deep colors, this calculated equation combines my very darkest with the Salter polychromes. ALGEBRA OF DARKNESS is a rich amaranth purple enhanced with a smokey velvet pile. The color is quite sunfast and interrupted only by the lime throat. Confidently presented, these smooth textured 6" flowers are exceptionally full and flat, while the understated calm edge adds both class and distinction. Of robust constitution, the plants make large divisions with sturdy erect scapes and four thru five-way branching. Very fertile either way.
