EARL PORTER

$100.00 Double Fan

*EARL PORTER scape 30”, bloom 5-1/2”, M.RE, dor, fragrant, nocturnal, 4 branches, 40 buds; (DARK EMPIRE X PAINT IT BLACK). This 5 1/2" showy black purple with its beautiful ruffling is far darker than parent PAINT IT BLACK, and even flatter and heavier. A true nocturnal, and blooms are fully open by midnight and are open by midnight the next day. Always FLAT-OPEN and always perfect, and the green throat is lime green by 8 p.m. on a 90° day. The color fades a little by day's end to a fluorescent deep black-violet, but is never badly damaged by either sun or rain. EARL PORTER makes huge plants and boasts extremely well-branched scapes with a bud-count as high as 40. This icon is not just a little heavier and a little darker than other blacks, it raises the bar by a wide margin. By sundown on a 93° day, EARL PORTER is nearly unchanged, fading to a shimmering violet black. A clump of EARL PORTER at 7 p.m. on a 90° day simply glows and seems enveloped in a luminescent blue haze.
