See below:



From Joe Pye Weed catalog, 2014: EAST MEETS WEST - '14, 15", L. SPEC-X-Sibtata (Schafer/Sacks). In case you have never heard of a Sibtata, don't feel bad, no one else has either. It is the cross of an American native - /.tndentata - onto a Siberian hybrid (during repeat bloom). Then medium blue-prrple falls are decorated by large white and purple signals. The big surprise comes in the center of the flower with very dark violet style arms and the palest lavender (almost white) standards. From /. tridentata, the standards are small. We do not know everything about the growth habit yet, but it is definitely clumping and not stoloniferous. It grows in ordinary garden soil and blooms after the Siberians, but before the tridentatas. Two to three buds. $25.00
