I call the colour of forget-me-nots 'sky blue' and consider it a pastel shade. A true blue to me would be Salvia patens 'Oxford Blue' (the Cambridge Blue variant would be another pastel blue in my eyes.) Of course, the definition of blue in a flower is the Gentian, which is why so many other blue flower varieties have that in part of their name. As has been said, true blue is a rare thing in flowers and a colour I love. Can't get gentians to grow for the life of me though - typical!
