From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2008: BALTIC SEA (T.Johnson 08) TB Late 38” (97cm). The extreme ruffles of 'Baltic Sea' reminds us of the power of crashing, windswept waves as they curl toward the shore. Large, tightly formed medium marine blue flowers are breathtaking when seen singly or in clump. Beards are soft cream to blue-white. Strong growth produces stalks with 3 branches and about 9 buds. Heavy substance helps Baltic Sea maintain its lovely form even in the rain. Sdlg. TW10A: Capital City Jazz X Sea Power. $50.00.
