white and purple

two colors that provide a nice contrast in a flower. a dark rich purple with white midribs and a white throat. and as dramatic as this flower is it has a fault. the scape that is supposed to hold up the flower does so poorly. it flops. some plants out grow the flopping. so far this one has not. the alternative is to cross the pretty flower with the floppy scape to a plant with a strong scape. some of those seeds will be planted soon. until then the flower is still very enjoyable…
