| From Windwood Gardens catalog, 2008: BLUSHING VIOLET (20051 35" VL dip Sdlg 98G2A7. Gull's Wing x 96UIB26 (complex background involving Mesa Pearl, Silver Illusion, Uber den Wolken and a few more). One of the last Siberians to flower (but that's not how it got its name), Blushing Violet is a sophisticated smooth blue bitone. The falls are clear mid-blue. The standards and stylearms are silvery light blue. That would be pretty enough in its own right, but additional interest and personality come from the red-violet blush on the shoulders of the falls that spreads as a narrow rim half way around them. There is a light red-violet rim on the stylearms too. Gently ruffled flowers with broad overlapping parts are held just above the strong upright foliage. One branch. $20.00
