    Question more than a review

    Karen in Wisconsin

    Is Ed Murray typically on the burgundy side of the color spectrum? I’m looking for dark burgundy instead of dark purple. Thank you.

    My Favorite Garden Guy, Ed Murray!

    What is your hardiness zone? Not Sure

    I just love Ed Murray, for several reasons, from its outstanding dark, rich burgundy-dark purple color to its striking edge highlights to its vigor and long bloom season. Due to its unique color, it is difficult to accurately photograph (like Dominic). Along with Sparkling Orange, this one is my favorite! It’s planted in several locations and does well anywhere. Here in west-central Ohio, Ed Murray is right at home and always welcome!

    Can’t add much to other reviews except to say it is best enjoyed close up where the color can best be appreciated. We have it in two places, one full sun and one part shade and it does well in both and holds it rich color. Can’t imagine not having it in our garden.

    This has become one of my favorites, I can see why it won the Stout Medal. The blooms are a very intense, saturated color. Mine is prettier than this photo, it is more of a maroon or purplish-burgundy. What I love about the flower is how the edges and some parts of it light up bright crimson when the sunlight strikes it. It reminds me of a stained glass window: dull one minute and brilliant the next. However, the flower doesn’t show up well from a distance and because the color is rather unusual, it might be an issue to find the perfect spot. I think it looks best in full sun with other bright, intense colors. I have mine next to my shrub roses. The plant is very hardy and reliable and it blooms for a long time.

    Mine is a mat brownish red, very hardy and spreads here and there. Very hardy, holds the color. Although mine is not very showy, it is reliable.

    Definitely one of my favorites. Stays dark even in the sun all day. Semi-border and ruffles just accentuate the beauty. Mine doubled the following season even in soil that was not so great in the new section of my garden.

    Beautiful dark dark red and color holds in sun. Great in mid border in a mixed perenial garden. Works with pink. The only fault,in my opinion, is that the blooms are a little small for the height of the plant but that is only important if it is planted as a specimen.

    Rich dark burgundy color a focal point for the garden. If you love the darks this is a winner for you. 😎

    A real winner for the color, size, bloom duration and number of flowers from June through August. Everyone should have at least one!
