| From Joe Pye Weed catalog, 2010: SOFT SPOT - SPEC-X xnorrisii. Schafer/Sacks (Seedling No. xN06-Vol-1}, 33", E-L. This is our first pardancanda introduction, and though a volunteer, it comes directly from Darrell Probst's best seedlings. It is a totally charming reverse amoena - violet standards and white falls dotted and dashed in blue and violet. Though intermediate, this flower is very "iris-type." It opens at noon and closes at 6:30 pm. It is shorter than many of Darrell's introductions. It has at least ten buds per spathe, blooming in 2009 for over 5 weeks. $25.00
