From Adamgrove catalog, 1997: NAVY BAND (Tankesley-Clarke, 97) Sparkling white blossoms with rich violet-blue petal edges, the shade others might call navy. Now, your navy socks won't quite match, but you'll have a hard time coming closer. Frankly, we'd like to have seen the blossoms a little smaller, but they are still within bounds. The pink-glaciata background could prove interesting. 463A:[Goddess X Everything Plus]
