With all due respect to Sgt. Joe Friday, the process of separating the good guys from the bad guys is very much a part of the day to day activities in our seedling beds. When we first spotted this dark purple flower we knew it was one of the good ones. The dark black-purple petals recurve evenly around a bright chartreuse throat. The substance is silky smooth with embossed midribs. A very prolific grower with 5 and 6 way branching and 24 buds. "Just the facts, ma'am".
