Damn the Torpedoes

(Forever Knight x Count Dracula) Sev. 6-6.5" fl. 29" sc. M 15-20 buds. Good to average rust resistance on cold hardy plants. Named from the famous quote of the brave American Admiral, "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead." What a great combination of two wonderful parents. Damn the Torpedoes combines the tall scapes of Forever Knight with the dark self color and near black eye of Count Dracula. Of course, these near black purple flowers have piled up another generation of the dramatic white edge with protruding teeth on both the petals and sepals. At the center of the flower is a cool green throat. The large, striking flowers are presented on tall scapes. Another wonderful step forward in breeding near black flowers with white, toothy edges. Obviously, these are real eye-catchers in the garden.
