Fruit edgedFlower descriptionPhylloclades lengthPhylloclades width
buds at 1 cm. are a bright pink, more intense than the similar cultivar 'Gemini'. 1.5 cm. buds exhibit sharply pointed tips. Flowers are medium in width. Petals are medium to broad in width with bases (macules) a very light blue violet (RHS 69D). Color change between petal zones is very diffuse and subtle. A large marginal zone is blue pink to light blue pink (RHS 73B - RHS 73C). Short to medium length stamens display pink or purple filaments. Stigma is white. Pod is green. Blooming period is mid-season with a medium to long duration.

PBRphylloclades are light to medium green. Margins less prone to developing red margins. Second order phylloclades are short and narrow. Pawnee Spirit has a weak tendency to form a wing on some phylloclades. These are small to very small with sparse bristling at the axils. Growth habit is horizontal becoming pendulous with age. 'Pawnee Spirit, while similar to the cultivar 'Gemini', differs in having larger bud and flower size, and more intense flower coloration ( RHS 73B -73C as compared to Gemini's RHS 73C-73D). 'Pawnee Spirit' is not as prone to red phylloclade margins.
