*SAILING AT DAWN -- (Gavin Petit) [(Big Blue x Mrs. John Cooper) (Lavender Blue Baby)] Sev. 6 fl. 26 sc. M 45 buds.  Sailing At Dawn has rich, plum colored flowers with a large grape violet eye.  The petal edges carry a wide matching picotee with a very ruffled bubbly gold to white edge.   At the center of the flower is a green throat.  This flower takes the blue eyed genes and combines them with the size, large eye and wide edge of Gavin Petit.  The result is a major movement toward extending the blue violet colors to cover most of the petal surface.  It has produced blue eyed, edged seedlings with little petal self color left.  A great flower, grand parent, and a show stopper in the garden.
