Knight's Victory


The contest between good and evil is the essence of his life, and commits him to a hard and lonely quest. Often the Knight must ride through the dark forest, but a spiritual force sustains him. Even when he can see only a glimmer of light through his visor, he is guided to victory. 

A half-sib of last year's Knight's Valor, this one offers a bigger flower on a taller scape. A rather triangular flower, the color is a rich red-purple with darker veining and often shows a white edge on petals. Purple stamens set off the glowing yellow-green throat.

Knight's Victory is a strong brawny plant and a fast increaser. Many scapes and flowers. Very pod fertile. Three-way branching and a budcount of 14-16. Hard dormant and very hardy. 

Begins last week of June here. Combining the lines of Jeff Salter, Pat Stamile and Steve Moldovan, this Knight comes from royalty. Double fans.
