    The whole plant including flowers is a bit bigger than the normal mossiae ; I have a couple of the ordinary pink ones in flower at the moment - nothing special , not particularly good plants, not worth posting - but this Wagneri has flowers maybe 2 inches bigger. Usual perfume ; nice, especially in the morning if the sun is shining. Plant not yet very wonderful - but I'm not into looking gift horses in the mouth. Catt flowers are a bit thin on the ground, whilst my catts are (hopefully ! ) recovering from their bad state. Well they must be recovering or I wouldn't have any flowers . So I'm enjoying this one, and inviting you to share.

    Really an awesome plant ! I have a few Mossiae seedlings, one is from a selfing of this variety and one is a cross with a semi-alma variety. I hope the seedlings maintain the bigger flower form like this one.
