    Just purchased a plant of this after chasing for some lengthy time. Very nice.
    You probably need to expand the name a bit Jack. Canhamiana var coerulea
    I know its been used for some time but the usage of the Var' is incorrect & should only be used for species. Yes it's coerulea but that's just a colour, it doesn't describe a plant variation in a species.
    Too late to change except for individual growers willingness, to C. Canhamiana 'Azure Sky'

    The named itself is so long and I agree very beautiful difficult to describe the color. Congrats Jack.
