From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2015: FIT FOR ROYALTY (Black ‘15) TB Early-Midseason 35” (89cm). The width and arch of the falls on these large perfectly formed flowers give it a very globular and robust feeling. It proclaims it can withstand any adversity that comes its way. Dark root beer beards don’t compete with its royal purple cloak. Strong vigorous growth produces show stalks with 3 branches and 7-8 buds. Interesting parentage of pink, purple and reverse bicolor. Sdlg. S124A: (Enough is Enough pollen parent x (Kitty Kay x Cameo Appearance)) X Feast of Kings sib. BONUS.
