Siris, do you know if there is a remontant blue one?

Yes Steragram, there are several on the market with differing shades of blue although I have none.
The flowers on My yellow Again and Again (above) got frosted on 15 Dec before opening. Also my Istanbul yellow and purply suffered the same fate, so I have seen neither flower, only squashy buds. What a silly time of the year to start flowering!! I will not deliberately buy any more remontants!
For your info:-
Midsummer Nights Dream, a dark blue, AM 2003 (award of merit)
Blue Suede Shoes, a paler blue, Am 2000.
Autumn Circus, a bluey/purple plicata.
Good luck to you if you try reflowerers!
