First Arrival. Anderson. 1986. Large medium lavender semi-double flowers carried on strong stems. Deep green foliage that lasts throughout the season make this a good landscape plant. A fast grower and gorgeous in a clump. First Arrival was the first intersectional to bloom in 1984 for Roger Anderson. Still one of the best. Week 5 bloom time. No fertility noted. (Martha W x Reath woody hybrid). Ships in late September to mid October.
