Description: Big, 5" blooms in sapphire-purple, the color intensifying with age. A central cluster of creamy yellow stamens contrasts beautifully with the stunning blooms.
Bloom Time: Summer to Fall.
Size: 8' tall.
Exposure: Part shade preferred. Avoid placing where the the more intense afternoon sun could potentially "cook" the foliage.
Pruning: In late January or early Feburary, cut back to around 2 feet high, to a pair of healthy buds. For a second spectacular flush of blooms, cut back again, by as much as one half after first bloom cycle. Dead-head as necessary to keep clean and tidy.
