Descriptions:
Never released before and not in nor any plans to put into production, this plant was held back primarily due to its importance in breeding. This is the result of a cross between 'Urajiro Hachijo' and 'John Wargo' and is a stubborn parent when it comes to setting pods but has powerful pollen for bringing purple into the flower scapes. This plant is in the heritage of past and future introductions. Leaves are a dark green with undulating edge, flare upwards and out, of heavy substance and are glaucous backed. It resembles a darker, flared lancifolia with pizzaz in the bloom scapes and equal vigor. A 5 year mound grown in average conditions grows 18" high by 41" wide.
