Is the long quest over?

This is tall blue lettuce. Flower color in this species ranges from white to blue, with many of those strongly suffused with yellow. The yellow combinations are interesting, and for a long time they were the only ones I've come across. The ones without yellow are not rare, I just hadn't seen them lately. One reason is that they're only open in the early part of the day. So it was a treat to see these at Oak Openings near Toledo. But the quest is not over. Still want to see full blue or pure white!
