    Default C. Olivetensis (maxima var. coerulea X loddigesii 'Blue Skies')

    This is the first bloom for this one. One bud opened yesterday and the other today. It open very pastel and then deepens. Unfortunately i haven't detected any scent yet but love the coloring. Am anxious to see what it does with future blooms.

    Lovely!! The yellow throat on the lavender is beautiful. Does the top sepal normally droop? It makes a very interestin presentation - I like it!

    Thank you. As far as the top petal drooping, since this is the first bloom for me , I don't know. I rather like the way it curls and I love the color.

    Today the scent has developed and it is wonderful! Strong floral/spice scent and the color has deepened to a deep carnation pink with lots of cream on the lip and throat.
