'Azubis' is the breeder-registered name and the synonym 'Indigoletta' is not approved by the breeder.
Original registration in Netherlands as 'Blue Queen'. The breeder lost a court case against H.A. Verschuren & Son and Kwekerij 't Hulder B.V. on August 31, 1992, where he claimed that these two nurseries introduced his 'Blue Queen' under the name 'Indigoletta'. He could not prove that these two roses are identical [From Bijblad bij De Industriële Eigendom", June 16, 1994]
