    Default Lc. Garrett Collins, as Promised

    This darned perky little fellow is Lc. Garrett Collins. Unlike his close relative, Lc. Big Dipper, he smells lovely. But this one still leaves me cold. I'm done with these cute ones.

    I know what you mean. I have a splash-petaled one currently blooming that will be removed from my collection.
    is that thrip damage?

    No - just the aging of the bloom due to my complete indifference.

    If it has a good fragrance that's always a keeper for me, nose rules. It's pretty , but I know the feeling about some blooms, I usually give it 2 times to bloom before I decide.
