A good modern purple flowered cultivar. I has been widely distributed on the wholesale market in recent years and is fairly easily available. I have found it floriferous, with large flowers on compact spikes. I like it for the quality of the colour - many of the purples are rather dull under damp western UK skies. This one has a good rich colour, and it doesn't fade in sunlight.

It remains a rather curious colour to find in the border, as incongruous as a pig in an orchestra, so it's not to all tastes.
A tetraploid raised by Curt Hanson in 1995.
