Awaiting original catalog description
Hybridizer's Comment: Lovely medium true blue with hints of blue-green that enhance its color. White speckling on the shoulders and edges as well as a white rim. Nice full form with big rolling curves. The flowers bloom just above the foliage with 3 or more buds per stalk.
