    1st time I flowered it, it was an arching spike of around 12 flowers. Lovely pale blue. Great flower shape & size.
    2nd time, dark blue, 6 flowers terrible shape & 2/3rds the size.
    3rd time, this one the flowers are 1/2 the size I got originally yet the plant has grown better than ever before.

    That's why I'm #%%$%%$ off.

    Pic of 1st flowering for me.

    Thank you Roy. I have heard this from some of my friends about this behavior from a few specific varieties of V.coerulea. don't know the reason for it.

    Could the temperature be a factor in bloom color?? V coeruela is very tolerent of wide temperature range even in wild type. I once purchased a wild type and grow it in intermediate/warm house and still managed to flower. But the color and size turn out to be much smaller and very pale blue.

    Thou most of the line breed coerulea don't have this issue. (But one can argue the line breeded clone are really 100% coerulea or not).

    From what I know, temperature certainly influences the color of coerulea but not sure of the form and number of flowers in the spike.

    This one is probably a minor line bred plant, many years ago. I think temp & the time the spike appears/flowers are the primary issues. Hopefully this will flower again in the more 'usual' time it should in my conditions so we can get another view.
