    This cultivar can sometimes be found being sold under the name 'Blue Cherub' (not to be confused with 'Lakeside Blue Cherub', a separate and distinct cultivar).

    'Azure Cherub' is the registered name. 'Blue Cherub' was the name it was being sold under in Europe prior to registration. That name was not allowed for use during registration and thus was renamed 'Azure Cherub'.
