Hardy annual. Dainty, fully double blooms in deepest maroon, almost black, edged in brilliant white. The margins of the petals are heavily frilled, and the overall effect is one of great dignity and refinement, yet stunning beauty. The 2-3 cm blooms are sweetly fragrant. Makes a fine cut flower but really shines in a massed planting. Compact plants, the flowers are held above the grass-like foliage, reaching about a foot in height.
