That's a pretty good description of EW. The colors are pastel enough that they
don't clash. In many places she is not a great grower, but she won the Dykes
Medal. Many of us find her very lovely, and she even reblooms once in a while.

This one is generally referred to by first-time seers as "Come here and look at
this one!" It is white and purple, with the colors in irregular splotches.
Registered as a BB, it often grows to TB height. Very striking.
