| From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2007: BOMBAY SAPPHIRE - SDB, 13" (33 cm), Early-Midseason. I have worked many generations since the debut of Tu Tu Turquoise to obtain that same turquoise color but with better shaped flowers and more vigorous growth. BOMBAY SAPPHIRE is very close to that goal. The road to that goal presented many challenges including seedlings with only one or two buds. BOMBAY SAPPHIRE has three. Tightly formed flowers are sky blue tinted turquoise. Falls have large turquoise spots that lighten toward edges. Beards are sky blue. Sdlg. L214A: Near Myth X (Toy Boat x Tu Tu Turquoise). Photo page 88. $18.00.
