The electric blue plus electric yellow is striking indeed. However, some of mine lost the yellow on the lower petals; it receded toward the center, to replaced by a light blue.

Not sure of the cause.

'Ultima Morpha' pansy was a new cultivar introduced in 2002, named for a butterfly of the similar color. It flowers profusely over the summer, its 2 1/2' blooms varying in color and pattern on the same plant.

I propagated them from seed in the very early spring, set them out in June, and had blooms all summer long in our Zone 3 climate.
