    Default Purple Catt - Blc. Oconee x Blc. Sunset Sail

    Here is my new addition. My self-control is working just perfect!LOL Went to pick-up couple flasks and came home with 4 flasks and this beauty. This blooms are almost done blooming, but there are several more that I hope will bloom soon. I don't have her name (yet) as I noticed the tag was missing when I got home, but I do know one of the parents is B. digbyana. Blooms are huge and so is she! She is growing in 8" or 10" (not sure) basket, gorgeous, fragrant and easy to get anyones attention. My husband loved it and tought I should have it. I already emailed the vendor and I hope to have the name by tomorrow. Hope you like it!

    Thanks, guys! I noticed the fragrance is very strong in the morning... Lovely!
    Amey, I would love to give you a cutting... You can come by anytime (make sure you have the Rhy...). Just keep in mind that in a few years you might need a bigger window! lol She is BIG.
