With shiny violet new leaves, deep purple stems, raspberry-purple buds and fragrant violet flowers, Virtual Violet® is aptly named. Leaf petioles remain violet well into the summer. The habit is upright instead of rounded and compact. The dense habit makes it a great choice for a hedge in smaller spaces as well as a welcome addition to foundation plantings. Remarkably mildew-free. This is a controlled cross between Charles Joly and two outstanding National Arboretum varieties. Bred by Don Selinger, Bailey Nurseries retiree.
