Matty - mer du sud is a beautiful deep blue in real life too.  Have been searching for a pic, but can only find one where you see it in the background if you enlarge the photo. The lilac one at the front is olympiad - also from Seagates

I have Mer du Sud .....got it from Seagate Irises in Lincolnshire.  I have bought from their nursery, but also from their mail order which was great too - they deliver in Aug/Sept every year
