  • TB 'Distant Roads' was blooming at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, zone 4b, approximately May 27 - June 11, in 2017. I didn't notice any Purple Based Foliage at the base of the leaves, but there was a little light purple coloring on the spathes, and is visible in my picture of the bud on the left side of the dual bud picture. -- HollyJohnson2017 -04-01 - 15 Aug 2017
