Full Description

TB 36″ M B1D

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1945: “An intense blue, deeper than medium blue, but not really a dark shade. The form, finish and substance are outstanding. Withstands either sun, wind or rain equally well, lasts long in bloom, and makes a wonderful garden clump.”

((Sensation X (Selene x Wambliska)), HM 1940, AM 1944.

Comment: “Has a satiny finish that is really different from most old ‘blues’. Really a blue-purple in tone, and was difficult to photograph the true color.” Mike, WA
