| From Joe Pye Weed catalog, 2015: HAPPY TRAVELER- '15, 36", M-L.SPECX-Sibtosa (Schafer/Sacks).Combining the best qualities of siberians and setosas, this plant produces an exorbitant amount of bloom - starting with the first siberians and blooming after the last. There are 8-9 buds per stalk. Flowers are mid-violet with darker veining near the yellow signals. The falls are large and standards quite small (as you would expect). The substance is light and the flowers ar sterile. This large clump is well behaved and makes a fine garden plant. Riverdance x Tourist. $25.00
