From Joe Pye Weed catalog, 2002: WORTH THE WAIT- SIBERIAN. Schafer/Sacks (Seedling No. S90-11-2), 34", Land RE. We think of this as a blue Devil's Dream. The flowers are large, deeply saturated blue-violet with no visible signal except a bright blue flash. The flower has deep rolling curves. It blooms very late after many siberians have finished and then rewards your patience with substantial repreat bloom. Devil's Dream X Sailor's Fancy. $30.00
