    Default Blc Volcano Blue 'Datsun'

    This had one flower last year and six this year. Petals and sepals start out white and then become lavendar. Haven't noticed much fragrance so far.

    That's a beautiful flower and great pictures. I don't know how you capture that glistening appearance of the petals. Good job.

    Janet,
    As a coerulea fan I have to say: "Great Color". The bluish purple color is seldom as intense as on your plant.
    The glistening is coming from Guarianthe bowringiana.
    With good care you may get up to 10 flowers in the next few years.
