The pretty, yet rather irregular shaped double blooms look rather like a ragged 'peasant' skirt. The many layers of tepals vary in depth of colour from the light mauve-pink of the outer layers through to the very pale mauve-pink of the inner layers. All have a delicate satin sheen. Each tepal tapers to a pointed tip with the margins recurving as the bloom matures. The stamens have white filaments and pale-yellow anthers. Single blooms are produced later in the season.
Violet Elizabeth is suitable for growing in a container or planting in the garden.
