Brummie Ben; I have been sitting here for 5 minutes, figuring out how to say this without causing offence, but it has to be said; that 'blue' rose is mauve, not blue. I am so fed up with buying aubretia that says 'blue' and it turns out magenta and so on... In every other area of design, colour is described accurately, why is it that plant nurseries get away with mis-describing colour?
This is not an attack on you or your lovely photos, but this whole 'blue rose' thing that has been going on for years does slightly smack of 'emperor's new clothes'
