Glowing purple flowers on dark stems in autumn, long flowering and with a dense bushy habit. Best in good soil in sun, largely mildew free. 1.2m.
Similar in size and habit to the well known 'Little Carlow' but with amazing purple flowers and complimentary blackish stems. Good at standing upright on it's own but better still if "Chelsea-chopped" in late May, cut back by about half.
