    Default One of my favorite minicatts

    A catt cross a friend of mine made:
    Slc Charming Jewel x (C. harrisoniana x C Leah Addis)


    Color is affected somewhat by light intensity during bud development. The colors portrayed here are actually very accurate on this one -- especially with the lip. It really is this color of red with an almost electric/luminous fuschia edging. Has a citrus fragrance.
