Comments: Looking at its parents and even its grandparents, it is no surprise that this flower has very dark red-purple edging with a shade lighter red within the flower and an even darker red-purple blotch. Nice rounded ball-shaped truss sitting atop dark green foliage. If you like dark colored flowers this may be the one for you.
