Itoh hybrid, parentage probably Mikado x P. delavayi. No seedling number since it was included in a batch of Itoh seed from Roy Pehrson about twelve years ago. The plant is vigorous and of dark green foliage that stays green until killing frost in the Fall. Its flower is dark purple, almost black, of medium size, and has a bright yellow center of stamens. Pollen viability is unknown. It sets no seeds. It is prolific and a great increaser.
