Flower Form: Decorative, double, large flower size, in clusters. 4 - 5 inch blooms. It has a light spicy scent

Comments: It may look like the old Joseph's Coat in color, however, the plant is 10,000 times better. The blushing yellows, pinks and reds of Jacob's Robe aren't an exact match......the multi-color effect is even more dramatic. It's equally floriferous, re-blooming readily the first year. But the plant shows off the big difference - more natural vigor, more lush glossy deep green leaves, better disease resistance and more hardiness.
