The first business men who explored the possibilities of trade on the Hudson were the Nantucket Navigators. The namesake flower is deep royal purple with heavily ruffled white edge, reminiscent of whitecaps on the river. Given room to stretch, NANTUCKET NAVIGATOR sports 3-4 way branching and 15-20 buds. Opens well, but not at 7am. There are similar flowers out there, but this is a solid performer in zone 4. (Gothic Window x Seminole Wind)
