    That looks great! I have one too, pretty sure it's the same clone. I'm still waiting for the flowers though.

    The other common clone has magenta coloring instead of the purple/blue color. I don't remember the name.

    It's small now as still a baby. Being an LC, I think it will wind up being a mid sized plant. Older ones I have seen are relatively compact, with 5" flowers.

    Very nice! My Robert Strait has never bloomed yet. I'm making him look at your picture as encouragement!
