From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1957: “‘Heavenly blue’ is a phrase befitting this new ruffled addition to an increasingly popular color class. Lighter in tone than many others, with a glowing gold beard; it is large in size, on tall and well branched stalks which defy both wind and rain. It makes one of the finest clumps in any garden.”

(Snow Flurry X Chivalry) HM 1954, AM 1956, Dykes Medal 1958.
