Francis is a gorgeous violet with a watermark in the eye zone that is difficult to explain. You will have to look at the picture. It is both white and lavender and sometimes streaks. Sometimes the thin white line is present on the edge as well. This is set off by a chartreuse throat. A 29” dormant tetraploid with a 5 ½” flower Francis blooms mid-season.
