'Bible Grove' (2008) Mercer seedling: ('Michael Vaden x Fudge Sundae') X (Court Magician x Tuscawilla Blackout')

Tetraploid 37 " tall, 5" flowers, Semi-evergreen, Midseason, 27 buds on 6-way branching. Black purple satin with white picotee and a red ring around a yellow-to-green throat. Small ruffles. Fertile both ways. Named for a town in northeastern Missouri, near the Iowa border. Hardy in zone 5. Tender in zone 4.   The photo above was taken in my shady back yard, where the branching didn't develop.  My Nikon D5000 gets the color of black purples exactly right.

Winner of the 2015 Region 11 Hybridizer Award.
