| Hybridizer's comment: "A compact, petite, strongly ruffled flower in deepest blue purple on a shorter stem makes a "median" Siberian effect. It is a sturdy grower with fine upright foliage. Rebloom is common and then the stalks may be taller and branched. The color is so intense it is difficult to depict in a photograph; it is a very eye catching clump."
