Our catalog correctly describes it as pale icy-blue and we got the
rhizome directly from the hybridizer, but as we prefaced the rebloom
report --those were brief, quick descriptions and in today's relatively
cool weather, it looks very whitish.  

Also, it may grow vigorously in Kentucky, but for us here it has always
bloomed on most of its' increases.  It increases well, but most of the
increases bloom as soon as they are large enough.

Regional differences I guess, maybe Little Showoff (bred in Ohio)
performs better in the colder climates of the country rather than in our
relatively milder climate.
