From Joe Pye Weed catalog, 2003: NOT QUITE WHITE- SIBERIAN. Schafer/Sacks (Seedling No. S96-43-1), 18", M and RE. A small flowered siberian with perfect modern form - full, round, flared and arching falls with soft ruffles - wide, full standards - short wide ruffled styles - all diamond dusted and with terrific substance. The name describes the color, which appears white but is actually the palest lavender. The signal is very unusual for a white siberian. It is white with very palpurple to green veining and tiny red-violet freckles near the hafts. The plant is short, in keeping with the small flower, has three buds per stalk and repeat blooms. ((Reprise x Mad Magenta) x (Isabelle x Silver Illusion)) X ((Reprise x Mad Magenta) x (Purple Prose x Mad Magenta)). $35.00
