    Default Blc Lois McNeil x Blc Volcano Blue

    It is not surprising that since Blc Lois McNeil is one parent of Blc Volcano Blue, when crossed to each other, the results are good and similar to the parents. Medium size flowers of good shape and color. I made this cross about 2009 and the first bloomed last year.

    Lovely blue. Backcrossing to one of the parents has certainly 'fixed' the desirable characteristics of this catt. Congrats on a very good cross.
