    I don t have a photo with the whole plant in bloom and no chance of making one until the next weekend. But the whole plant with the bud from last week is on the forum, in the category of photos NOT IN BLOOM, under the name of Strange bud on my Hiroshima MelodyBlue LC

    I love the lip on that one! Gorgeous!

    There was no leaf prior to the bud due to the influence of Catlleya walkeriana (a parent) on this blooming

    This is exactly what I think and the same for the citrus fragrance.

    Very beautiful coerulea hybrid.
