- TB 'Raspberry Fudge' bloomed at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, zone 4b, approximately June 1-9, in 2017. Although I didn't see any purple based foliage at the base of the leaves of 'Raspberry Fudge', there is a small amount of dark purple coloring on the spathes. -- HollyJohnson2017-04-01 - 24 Sep 2017
