Florists variety of Flossflower that we think makes a nifty garden plant too. Large rich violet umbels repeat through summer. Remove spent flowers to encourage more. Full sun and rich, well drained soil. Lightly fragrant and a stupendous cut flower. To 18″ tall and 10″ wide. Deep green foliage and black stems are handsome. Short lived perennial. Light summer water. The species is pure light blue and the cultivar ‘Dark Purple’ is just that. See photograph below.
