Twilight Zone


Take the amethyst purple color & powerful perfume of Ebb tide but take it into a different dimension with a bigger flower and stronger plant. Big fat buds open to very double old-fashioned flowers of deep velvet purple overlaid eith a wisp of smoke...a purple haze for the garden. Strongly scented with a combination of clove and lemony citrus blossom. Deep green leaves cover the plant.
