Thorhalla

named for a woman of Norwegian mythology.  does it make sense ?  it must have to the person who named this flower.  and who grew it from seed in his garden.  and for that part it is all that matters.  then there is the flower for us.  tall.  purple.  late in the garden season.  and capable of a great deal of bloom.  Thorhalla.  perhaps i should plan on giving it a bit more water next season.  it might bloom better here in this garden.  four images…

Thorhalla

it is a Norwegian name, daughter of Asgrim.  the plant is tall and the flower is narrow.  all purple with a yellow throat.  what seedlings might come from this plant ?  there are four seedling that have come to be registered from this flower.   Valkyries Flight is a hint of what is hidden among those genes.  time will tell what else is lurking in the future of this daughter of Asgrim.
