| From Joe Pye Weed catalog, 2003: HERE BE DRAGONS- SIBERIAN. Schafer/Sacks (Seedling No. S96-26-4), 28", E/M. Where to begin .... A yellow bitone overlaid with blue-violet wash and veining. The standards are pale yellow with deeper yellow highlights, a warm yellow rim and pale blue-violet veins in the heart. The falls are a deeper yellow with a muted blue violet wash out toward the edge and blue-violet veins at the throat. The styles are a great surprise - cream to pale yellow with deeper yellow tips and smooth blue-violet flanks and heart. Not reluctant to display these outrageous flowers - each stalk carries two branches, five to six buds, including four in the terminal. Slight fragrance. Fantastic parent.
