Purple Princess delivers a Kikyou

The grow out of my Purple Princess has delivered a couple unanticipated results. One of the most pleasing is a small statured purple Kikyou plant with glossy dark green variegated leaves. The plant is still only 16 inches tall and the flowers are 1 3/4 inches across. As all the flowers to date have been petaloid doubles, I doubt that I have seed yet, but hopefully later in the season it will produce single flowers that will be fertile. I created a gallery of all the flowers of the complete grow out to show the variation.

  1. Arlan, that’s very interesting. Usually those plants that are star shaped usually have contracted leaves… but I barely see and contraction on your leaves.
