More Details

Pure purple base flowers are topped with paler mauve ones, with hints of apricot, peach and copper throughout. These perennial wallflowers are renowned for flowering long and hard from spring right through the summer, often the first things to come into full bloom with the hellebores and daphnes. I like picking these for spring bunches too.
