Regal Finale

Regal Finale 

Stamile – 1988 – (Super Purple x When I Dream) – Dip – 26” – 6” – Late – Frag – Dorm – Violet Purple self with green throat.

AHS Registry Link

An excellent dark red-purple-black flowered cultivar with very good rust resistance. I don't have a picture, though I was sure I did, so didn't take a good one last summer. Until I can get a picture, go to the AHS link above or to The National Garden Association database to see multiple pictures.

Good breeding value for rust resistance. I have gotten good results from pollen, but I have not gotten pods. Moderate thrip resistance, and late season helps with thrip problems in my garden. A fast increaser and vigorous grower.
