One of the most striking large flowered varieties we grow, the massive 10-12 inch smoky-plum blooms of this moody giant are loved by all who visit our garden. Plants produce an abundance of huge, ruffled flowers on long stems. If you are looking for an unusual twist for bouquets, then ‘Penhill Dark Monarch’ is just the ticket.
Details: Flower type: dinnerplate Height: 4-5’ Site: full sun Days to maturity: 80-100 days Plant spacing: 12-18” Pinch: when plants are 12” tall
Harvesting/Vase Life: Cut when blooms are three-quarters of the way open, but not overly ripe. To do this, check the back of each flower head, looking for firm and lush petals versus papery or slightly dehydrated ones. Place into water with hydrator, or sear stem ends by placing into 160-180* water and allow to cool for 1 hour. Blooms will last 5-6 days.
