Soooo mysterious in its color…and soooo powerfully perfumed…it’s certain to attract attention. Dusky deep purple buds swirl open to very double old-fashioned flowers of velvet plum washed with a haze of sultry smoke. The intense clove fragrance can nearly bowl you over. But keep your balance or you’ll find yourself face down amongst the deep green leaves.
