| From Joe Pye Weed catalog, 2017: STEP LIGHTLY- SIBERIAN. Schafer/Sacks (Seedling No. S09-69-3), M, 31". A delicate dance of ruffled pastels with peach, lemon, and apricot notes. Falls are shades of peach with apricot highlights around the small yellow signals. Broad standards are very pale yellow - accented by styles with lemon yellow crests and midribs. This is not a delicate grower or bloomer. One to two branches have up to six buds. The lovely branching holds the flowers well above the foliage for an elegant effect.
