From Draycott Gardens catalog, 2016: SHIRYUKYO (Hiroshi Shimizu, 2008) 45-54" M-L. This later blooming pseudata has been incredible in the garden. It bloomed at a height of 45" in the stock garden but grew to 54" in a landscaped area which received extra water and fertilizer, and bloom continued for over three weeks. The stalks have a triple socketed terminal and three branches all rising far above the foliage. The purple falls with a darker purple rim roll and twist to give a ruffled effect. Flowers are also large for a pseudata, averaging about 6½". The name means “Purple Dragon’s Valley”. $10.00
