    Default Another Blooming Bouquet

    This plant has an interesting habit, the flower open fully the first day and then go limp, then within a day, firm back up and look wonderful. Delicious fragrance, easy grower with bright light and heat.

    C. Moon Festival 'Seventh Heaven x C Bowringiana var. alba

    There are six blossoms, one is hiding in the back.

    I like how you were able to capture the
    "crystalline" appearance of the petals,
    it's one of my favorite things about catt.s
