    Nice! Even looks as if it is fragrant.

    It is... so sweet. When more buds open it will take over the greenhouse with fragrance.

    Looks very nice. This one seems to lack usual blue pigments. May be crossed with alba strain

    I can see blue/purple tinge at the edge of the petals.

    This one is actually called 'Pink' because it has very subtle pink shading on the edges of the almost pure white blooms. I have both varieties ( 'blue' and 'pink'). "Blue' is very vibrant and bold, but 'Pink' is soft.
