(Purple Badger x Vampire Fish)
The large 6.5” Flowers of PURPLE SCORPION are a rich purple with a faint grape colored band. The petals are fully surrounded in “stinger-like” teeth, fangs, and claws of gold and silver tones! The color explodes into the center of the bloom with a vibrant lemon and chartreuse throat adding a glow. Flowers are held on sturdy, nicely branched scapes of about 31”. The plant habit is dormant. Nice clean blue-green foliage especially in the early spring. PURPLE SCORPION is vigorous , hardy and increases nicely in our zone 6 garden. With Vampire Fish in its lineage , those looking to breed for teeth won’t want to miss this one.
