    Default Ctna. Lavender Maid 'Volcano Queen'

    Got this as a tiny seedling two years ago because I thought it would smell awesome because C. walkeriana was the pollen parent. I wasn't disappointed as it smells just like C. walkeriana. Plant is in a 3" pot..about 5" tall and the blooms are 1.5" in diameter. (Ctna. Maui Maid x C. walkeriana)

    Very nice, Clint. I'm not surprised that it is fragrant -- not because of the walkeriana (I didn't know that one was fragrant) but because of the Maui Maid -- which I know from experience is beautifully fragrant.

    Oh, Clint - another awful bloom. I really think you should just get rid of a few of your plants. As soon as my furnace is fixed I'll PM you my address....

    Don't worry about the furnace, Clint - it is best to get that 'thing' out of your house. Go on and send it to me. I will 'take care' of it - heheh...no worries!

    Cheers,

    Did I mention that IT IS STUNNING!

    Nice one, Clint! I love the little beauties. What does the fragrance smell like (besides awesome)? Give us smell challenged folks something to imagine!
