From Draycott Gardens catalog, 2016: YASHA (Hiroshi Shimizu, 2010) 48" M. Can't you just see the eyes of the devil in this flower? The color changes dramatically as the flower opens, giving a lovely contrast on the clump of many different shades. Also note the thin dark edge surrounding the falls. The name means “The female devil”. $10.00
