  • MTB 'Slim Jim' was blooming at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, zone 4b, approximately, May 25 - June 8, in 2017. It has fairly dark Purple Based Foliage at the base of the leaves at least during and after flowering. There is some light purple coloring on the spathes as well. -- HollyJohnson2017-04-01 - 06 Aug 2017
