Description: Despite the name, the flower colour is more purple than blue, but they also have a subtle silvery lustre. The larger than average size of the fully double blooms will also pack a pretty impressive punch when woven through the border or used in pots. A good mixer, it goes well with most pinks and purples as well as deep plum.
