Yesterday, found a source for both Purple D'Oro and Velvet Shadows, very reasonable prices. An order will be going out soon. Also stumbled across a 2016 intro by Goudea named Sweet Little Bit. It is tiny with a 1.5" flower. Check out the stats and picture on the AHS data base. Great picture, the eye looks dark blue to me.

Just checked out the stats on Purple De Oro, and notice I put in the correct name this time. That's very important when trying to research these flowers. There are really many of these small purples that I like, and just wish they were all sold by one seller so I wouldn't have to be constantly trying to find them. Okay, no more whining, back to work. BTW, it's not just small purples coming, there are several large ones, too, and I will list them on the What Are You Ordering for 2018 thread.

I am just going to look up Sweet Little Bit now. It sounds sweet.

I ordered this little 2.25 inch one for spring delivery.

Some lovely little purples on here, going to be some lovely gardens when they all flower! I am so envious of your access to all these lovely varieties!🤣

I have the following little ones coming but don't have any pics so will have to look some up tomorrow (it's late here and past my bedtime!);

My Gal Sal
Nacogdoches Bing Cherry (more pink than purple but close)
Barefoot Blues
River Hills (black purple uf small flower)
Alpine Mist.
Buddy's Angel Baby


Have a couple of others coming but they aren't purple . I am hoping to finally get hold of Crystal Blue Persuasion but not sure if she would be classed as purple as in some pictures she looks quite cream.

Here are the pics, mainly taken from the database so hope I credit the correct sources--apologies for any mistakes!

And then hoping to get Crystal Blue Persuasion, which is described as pale lavender but looks cream in all the photos, not confirmed yet though, will contact the seller to confirm in March.

:

The first two look more pink but My Gal Sal is generally thought of as purple so included it.

Velvet Shadows is a GREAT plant, I know that you aren't keen with crossing with older varieties but I would urge you to consider using this one to try and get its great plant habits and colour properties passed on to its seedlings.

Off to look up Sweet Little bit now. Edited to add, just looked, it is lovely, I'm also very envious that you can get Morrie Otte, have always liked that one but it isn't available here, love your other choices too.

Thanks Valerie and Ginny,

I have Polar Picture coming as well which is a plain near white small flowered one (about 11 centimeter diameter flower) to go in the middle of the coloured ones to set off the colours nicely.

All right, back again with the news that I have ordered the following small DLS:

Velvet Shadows
Purple De Oro
Little Blackie

Little Blackie is described as very dark purple with a small reddish halo and green throat. There are a couple of nice pictures of it in the DL database.
