I love this color, but of course it is not blue. It does have a gray/lavender tone to the pink. It does not, however, open fully for me most of the time. The blooms are large and the substance is heavy. Nice scapes. This color is a little harder to find, so I still have this just for its color, but if I ever found one that opened out better, I'd trade it off.

Beautiful flowers on a very hardy plant. I transplanted these when I first bought them, into containers that are now way too small for them in a position where they don't get enough water, and they are still blooming like crazy. The first few blooms on each plant were larger, and subsequent flowers have been slightly smaller, but there are a lot of them.

I've tried growing this variety a couple of times before but they didn't produce much at all. Nothing like the plants growing this year! Two plants are pumping out so many huge fruits that we are sharing them with friends. Seeds from Trish and Dave in the "Beta Seed Swap." It sure makes a difference getting good quality seed! Juicy tomatoes are full of flavor.

Beautiful flowers, yellow trumpet-shaped flowers with deep brown stripes. The scent (of mine, at least) isn't as strong or sweet as the Wave series, but still a wonderful petunia scent.
