Anecdote:

 

In some parts of the world the Montreal Blues (E.S. 6-4-47) is also known as St. Theresa. Legend has it that a nurseryman after having discussed it with Elmer Swenson would have agreed to call it so, in honor of Saint Therese of Lisieux (France), the Carmelite nun who showed her love of God by planting flowers.
