It looks blue here too.  I've not grown Pacific Tide, but I grew Sugar Blues at Alvaton.  I understand, since I'm finding it hard to trash something that reblooms early, even if it doesn't look the very best. 
<<Looks true blue on my monitor, but it's not.>>
Will look forward to seeing pictures of the new ones. 
It was a wonderful day here.  Finished planting all of my seed (1672) in the mum pots (75.)  Now to keep them cool and wet for awhile. 
Looks like some of the blooms may have escaped the freeze.  Another week of beautiful blooms.

Betty - This is one of the three I told you off-list I hadn't the heart to compost.
Dependable rebloom starting around Labor Day.  Last terminal on last stalk, 3rd day
open, through 3 frosts, so losing color and drooping a bit. Looks true blue on my
monitor, but it's not.
I've potted 9 maidens from 30" tall to just starting (including an Immortality X
Gypsy Lord for Linda), so hopefully some will bloom well enough to post.  Absolutely
no idea where I'm going to keep them indoors until May, along with hundreds of new
seedlings already up.
New to the Indiana list - Friday Night Chat rebloomed in the guest garden up the road
in September.  Wish I could have told Mike.
