This species was wild-collected in Italy but fits no known species. Therefore it is assumed to be either a natural hybrid or one involving at least one garden escape. In any case, it is quite consistent from seeds, producing crowns of mostly 4-6 inch lance-shaped basal leaves. The leaves are deep green in color, deeply veined and closely toothed around the margins. Branched flowering stalks rise 12-18 inches from the crowns in summer and fall, carrying many whorls of small, intensely violet flowers.
