Hybridizer's Comment: Standards are icy blue on the outer and deepening to blue violet at the midribs. Falls are lovely smooth blue violet, deepening slightly at the hafts. Beards are muted soft lemon. This is a standout variety that has really captured our eye every time we look at it. Superb branching and growth. We really love this. Quite fertile and so far only one cross has flowered for us as yet and one selection marked. Pedigree could give anything.
