From AIS Bulletin #289 April 1993 Introducing BLUSHING PRINCESS. This single (3 falls) beauty is a superlative addition to the garden with its unique shape that readily stands out. It is a good season extender with its late bloom period starting mid to late June in Virginia. Pristine white standards are edged with a narrow line of rosy purple. The very large falls are white blending to rosy purple with a heavier concentration at the petal edge. $35. Nicholls Gardens.
