I had this come up in my garden this year and I really can't remember what it is or where I would have got it from. Or for that matter planting anything where this is. It's not Purple Prince as it is a deeper colour, wider more open flower and has speckles in the throat where P.P. doesn't. The foliage and flower is more OT like than oriental I think. Any ideas? The bottom two pictures are a little dark but it shows the side view with some leaves. The top two are pretty accurate for colour.

Thanks Anthony. I think I found out where I got it from and I'm waiting for an answer from them. If it is from them then it would have to be Montezuma.

Just had it identified from the source, it's not Montezuma but an OT called Mussasi.

Yep, a dead ringer. I didn't think it was Montezuma-- the spots are not right. Would you like to upload your photos to the data base here:
