Attractive and stylish double, with a surprisingly long slender tube contrasting beautifully with a full, but neat violet corolla. Lovely display, will make a good basket, but like so many semi trailing types, also looks great planted in containers for summer bedding.

Tube: Quite long, pink (62C).

Sepals: Pink (62C) above, paler (62B) below, green reflexed tip.

Corolla: Opens violet (84A), matures paler (84B), smooth petals, full.

Parentage: Bicentennial x Sofie Michiels.
