'Velveteeny' offers the same silky smooth, deep burgundy foliage with large feathery plumes of dove gray to pink blooms as it's big brother 'Royal Purple', but in a petit, dwarf form. Maturing at a mere 4', 'Velveteeny' is as versatile as it is exquisite, with its compact, rounded shape and brilliant color a dazzling addition to any sunny landscape
