Navajo Jewel has never looked green to me. It is a pale sky-blue
"turquoise" (great milky color, not a shiny finish), best when it opens
indoors or on a cloudy day. Not a strong grower for me despite large
rhizomes, it often lost all its roots for six months at a time, and could be
rot prone. Monty Byers' Sea World was supposed to be a blue-green (also
pale), what it had was a faint yellowish tint to the veins (NOT a
luminata-style veining) in a blue-white flower (pale pale blue plus a faint
yellowish overlay really did not equal blue-green. Willowmist (SDB) was
indeed a sort of lichen green with blue-lavender beards. A couple of other
SDB's were also supposed to be blue-green (Haven, Azure something-or-other),
but I never saw them. Haven sounded great. Anyone know it?
