About This Plant

Rounding out the Butterfly series which also includes yellow and orange cultivars, ‘Purple Emperor’ produces large, fragrant, saturated magenta purple blossoms on sturdy, well-branched stems that are held in perfect proportion to the bushy clump of deep green foliage.  As the flowers age, the tips of the petals turn a bit lighter pink but the center remains a bright magenta color.
