You probably already received the post with the three pictures already but just in case.....
You have Tropical Delight I believe.  Seedling # J-124-A  If it bloomed late in the season for you it was paler in color than the early spring bloom I posted.  It is a stubborn rebloomer here, fighting through -1 to -2 degrees C to bloom.  Usually reblooms early winter.  Thunder Quay is a very broad, blocky billow ruffled blue with somewhat of a white beard.  Typically has 13 to 15 buds on 3-4 branches, spur and terminal.  Very strong stalks that are proportioned and tall enough to allow that many flowers to bloom nicely.  It does not rebloom. 
----- Original Message -----

Is it really as pinky red as the photo shows, what colour is Thunder Quay? purple? do both parents rebloom?
It's rather nice.
