This Ned seedling was selected for introduction in 2008, but that didn’t happen. FL stats: Early, 4", 21" Ht, dark purple, yellow/green throat, curly sepals, 13 BC in FL.
Definitely higher bud count up north. Extremely good substance and all around good plant. Fertile both ways.
My personal favorite among the small dark reds and purples, this image shows more red than the deep purple that my eye sees.
