Big fat buds open to very double old-fashioned flowers of deep velvet purple overlaid with a wisp of smoke…a purple haze for the garden. Strongly scented with a combination of clove & lemony citrus blossom. Deep green leaves cover the plant & compliment the remarkably-colored flowers. Tempting mysterious tones, seductive fragrance and old-fashioned form…it's a winner! More purple in moderate temps.
