Purple plicatas ARE old school. They go way back. The first Dykes Medal winner was a purple plicata. However, extremely dark purplish black plicatas like Old School and its parent Inside Track, are a more recent phenomenon. Semi-closed standards are solid dark purple except for winks of white here and there. The rim of the well-turned fall is the same dark purple. The big splash of white in the center of the falls makes for a jolting contrast. Old School has abundant flowers - 4 branches with 9 buds on a stalk. Brushing aside fads reveals truths. And beauty. Like Old School as shown.
