serrata ‘Miyama-Yae-Muraski’ (Takeshi Seto 1950)

Bed V: Plant 14

The name is from Myama, an area near Tokyo, Yae means double, and Murasaki is Violet.

‘Miyama Yae-murasaki’ is a gorgeous Japanese cultivar. Delicate, soft pink or lavender blue, fully doubled sterile florets surround a large boss of fertile florets. The entire floral head turns red in the autumn. As the sterile florets mature, their petioles lengthen giving the floral heads the appearance of exploding fireworks. Appreciates a partial shade situation.
