Swallow Tail Kite X Waves Become Wings
Avoiding the petty distractions and superfluous details which all too often clutter the garden in pointless affectations, Bare Essentials communicates in restrained simplicity. These pinched and flaring 7-1/2" narrow crispate flowers present an airborne quality of graceful motion. The colour is a delicate soft rose- violet which blends smoothly into a large green throat. These elegantly crafted simple flowers are presented on stalwart 36" erect scapes with wide three-way branching. Fertile both ways. Reblooms.
