The Italians sure know how to breed colour perfection! Azzuro is the absolute perfect lilac blue anemone - while other series are similar, Azzurro has a depth of colour that takes them to a whole other level!
I've found the Mistral series to be slightly less productive than other series - but in the best possible way! I often found other series to be tiresome to keep on top of their constant never ending harvesting and constant deadheading, but the Mistrals were that perfect balance of productive without crossing the line of being unmanageable (unless you were shifting and setting up farms and everything in spring was unmanageable like me last spring :)
