    Default Rlc. Karen's Sunrise 'Waianae'

    A beautiful Catt but one that takes a lot more than gives. As you can see there is one flower of fair quality opening but 2 smaller buds on the stem & will probably be much less a quality than the open one. You need 2 or 3 plants of it to chance a flowering of all quality blooms. Taint easy.
