  • TB 'Designing Woman' was blooming at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, zone 4b, approximately May 29 - June 8, in 2017. It has Purple Based Foliage, that was visible at least after flowering, on the base of the foliage. It look like it has some purple coloring on the spathes as well, but it is light in color. -- HollyJohnson2017-04-01 - 15 Aug 2017
