  • Large, thick flower spikes on plants that are better-branched at the base than Purple Majesty.
  • Slightly darker purple than Purple Majesty, with leaves that are shorter and wider for easier shipping, on a plant that is about two-thirds the mature height.
  • Young plants are green; stem and mid-rib begin to develop purple colour as they mature.
  • Colour development is best when grown in full sun.
