    Ok, as you look at the flower, the R/H petal actually bends forward quite badly. Hard to see in pic. Where the petals overlap at dorsal, left one is bent forward. The R/H lwr sepal has gone wandering out of position. The flower also has little white flecks on the petals. Not virus, just a fault in the colour make up. I have a different Catt, a deep red that has it this year yet divisions of that same plant I have flowering don't have the flecks.
    I have noticed a huge amount of deformed Catt flowers this year from many growers, I'm thinking it the odd weather we are having across the country.

    I have a few clones of Sanyung Ruby and they are nice color but not the best shape. They frustrate me.
