Painted in bold tones of deep plum, the round buds open into extraordinary domed flowers that reach an astonishing 8 in. across and, set against burly, freely branching burgundy stems and vigorous green foliage, have a dark allure. Give this Korean native plenty of room as it rockets skyward.
Decorative foliage and fascinating flowers. Onion-sized flowering buds open to large hemispherical, dark, reddish-purple colored flowers. Decorative foliage. Lush, tropical-looking, reseeds in the garden for long term use. A striking architectural plant either alone or in small groups. Gold Medal prize winner at Plantarium in Boskoop, Holland, 1993.
