  • IB Devilish Nature bloomed at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, zone 4b, approximately May 23 - June 2 in 2017. It had Purple Based Foliage at the base of the leaves visible during and after flowering. This particular clump wound up getting a couple of incompletely formed buds that flopped over, creating what I felt, was an interesting looking bloom. -- HollyJohnson2017 -04-01 - 01 Aug 2017
