Glad you like it, Linda.  As a matter of fact, it doesn't look like mud from a distance (hooray!)  --  but one sees immediately, from a little distance, the softness of the texture inherited from THAT CERTAIN SOMETHING, particularly in the standards.  It doesn't have the heavy suede texture of TCS, but a quality of softness.  This is a matter of light play, as you can see from the attached photos of the stalk taken from different angles.  2 branches, 2 spurs, 6 buds, 29" tall, good substance, faint fragrance, indescribable, but not unpleasant.  --  Griff

Oh Griff - I really like that one. Possibly looks like mud from a
distance? But I <love> the subtleties of color.

Which reminds me, I forgot to go look at RANKS OF BLUE for you.....
