    Very beautiful !! The second clone is superior wrt form and shape, but I also like the colors on the first one.

    Nandini, try hybrids like Sansai blue, they are very similar to the coerulea parent, and yet very easy to care for and multiple bloomers.

    Amey, I have a Princess Mikasa Blue that blooms regularly and is a favourite of mine. Species have proved difficult for me though... :-(. Any tips on V. coerulea, Pune climate might be similar to Bangalore I am thinking with low humidity etc ?

    I can vouch for that. I bought Sansai Blue 'Acker's Pride' FCC/AOS in late November in bud. Bloomed nicely and they lasted almost 2 months. Within a couple weeks of the first spike dying off a new spike initiated and has been in full bloom again for about the past month.
