From AIS Bulletin #301 April 1996 Introducing AZZURRA (Bianco '96). TB, 37" (93 cm), Midseason. From a classic cross, this variety captures the best of both parents. A pure azure blue self, as clear and shimmering as the skies over Florence on a crisp spring morning. Light blue beards, changing to yellow in the heart. Gently ruffled. A vision of health, both in the production of plants and in the formation of its stalks with 3 well-spaced branches, 8 buds. Honorable Mention (8th Place) in the 1993 Premio Firenze competition in Florence. Seedling #114: (Olympiad X Shipshape). $30.00. Contemporary Gardens.
