(Dan Trimmer, 1996). (Always Afternoon X Tetra Neal Berry) Dormant 5 3/4" flowers, 26" scapes, early midseason. This fertile, dark lavender, round offspring of Tetra Neal Berry is one of the most full and ruffled tetraploids I grow. The color is a deep lavender with a slightly darker halo above the green throat. The color and substance last the entire day undamaged in full sun. HEAVENLY SHADES was named for its heavenly shade of lavender. It is a very good grower though a modest increaser. Scapes are erect, bud count about 20, and the flowers are held above the foliage.
