Descriptions:
The Stegemans really came up with something special when they created 'Midnight Oil' by crossing 'Neat Splash Rim' (an old Florence Shaw plant) onto 'Potomac Pride'. The result is a plant that was amazingly dark despite being planted in a lot of direct sun.
No special fertilizers or anything were used, and the plant was there for three years.
