    Default Red Catt, lost the tag...

    Tall plant small flowers, not an ideal combination for limited growing space. Still, it is hard not to like this diligent bloomer. It came to me 2 years ago with only a few good roots, and it flowered anyway. It has been struggling to recover all year and again it flowered! The red is beautiful and it has nice fragrance too. Enjoy!

    It's a pretty thing!!!

    I think your red catt is Blc. Cherry Suisse (possibly the 'Kauai' HCC/AOS clone). This grex is a quite common red catt and it always blooms at this time of the year.

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Hey, Tim, do you mean Hoa? Cause I haven't got a clue as to the name of this beautiful catt.....and I for sure never heard of Thwaitesara Adesso Tu..... Living down under and up-side-down all your life must have got your brain just alittle confused..... You'll just have to move north of the equator and I'm sure things will improve for you.... Take it from me, I'm a doctor

    It reminds me of C Chocolate Drop 'Volcano Queen' Which has those color tones.

    Mystery solved! I contacted the grower about the name, and it's Blc. Dennis Kone 'Lakeview' HCC/AOS.

    Thank you for your nice comments
