5" flowers on an 18" scape makes for big bright blooms on a front of the border plant. Consistently doubles for me.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!

Amethyst Art is a slow grower for me. It's going to get some alfalfa pellets this year. Still...a beautiful flower. Consistently doubles for me as it does for Lisa. Although I tag it as a slow grower, doesn't mean anyone should shy away from it. It's actually nice NOT to have to divide so often. Very pretty bloom. Here is my best picture of the bloom.

I like the "double" of this as it does not appear to be a big puff ball. More of a "gentle" double. I like that.
