WAYSIDE KING ROYALE
$14.99 each, 3 for $39.99
* 6″ bloom, 36″ tall, Early-Mid Season, Dormant
One of our favorite purples. A rich purple with a deeper purple halo around a vibrant yellow throat. Slightly ruffled edges and a faint midrib on the petals. Fragrant.
Purples are a challenge to photograph – too much shade and they can look dull (or, ironically, too vibrantly purple), too much sun and they take on a reddish tint. You’ll see a variety of shades of color in the pictures, which reflects photos taken at different times of the day, and in different conditions of sun and shade. You’ll see in the comments below that folks call it a “royal purple” and a “very deep purple”, which sounds about right to us.
