Amy - for the first time in all the years that I've grown this it has set a few seeds. I'm hoping that they'll germinate and revert back to the true species.

HB - I'll post a close up of it. It looks even better with the blue set against the "black" stems and calyces.

Amy - it will be even nicer if the seeds revert. I then have the very hard to find true species for free!
