From AIS Bulletin #277 April 1990 Introducing DEVIL'S DREAM-Schafer/Sacks SIBERIAN, 33", L. Defying the color chart-we could not find any swatch to match the deep, rich wine red of Devil's Dream. This highly saturated color is complimented by lighter styles and a purple blaze surrounding a hidden signal. Excellent substance, a large flower, broad strong lines, and four buds made this a perfect choice for our first introduction. Percheron X Purple Prose. 30.00. Joe Pye Weed's Garden.
