From Fairmount Gardens catalog,1958: CRESTED GEM (Henry 1948) From Alabama this tiny variety of Cristata is most appealing. An exquisite flower of palest China blue, delicately etched with a deeper blue on white around the yellow crest. The slender tube is golden yellow, and the flower is fragrant. It is amazingly floriferous and thrives in full sun or part shade. $5.00
