Colour: Heliotrope with a white centre.
General: A striking and much admired variety which is always in demand. The depth of colour appears to fluctuate mid-season, becoming much paler and receding. The blooms have substance and do not require much dressing, making them suitable for either vase or board.
Cultivation: Has responded well to pot culture, producing quite bushy plants and thus a good crop of cuttings. High temperature or excess shading may induce the colour fading.
