From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2005: COOL CONFIDENCE - TB, 40" (102 cm), Midseason. There's nothing harsh about Cool Confidence. Ruffled medium violet-blue standards blend smoothly to paler margins. Styles and broadly formed, ruffled falls are icy white tinted with a touch of blue. Tangerine beards beckon you for a closer look. Flowers are large and growth husky, as one would expect from these two terrific parents. Sturdy show stalks have 4 branches and 8-9 buds and easily opens 3 of these large blooms at once. Cool Confidence makes an elegant clump. Sdlg. J202A: Mountain View sib X Fogbound. BONUS.
