    Then I hope that the next time it blooms it is as blue or more blue then this picture!

    Fantastic blue color. Hope the color gets better as it matures although it already has superb color.

    That plant clearly shows many years of consistent good care. Well done. I love the shape and the flares, in addition to the color. This as an awarded clone, HCC/AOS (76pts, 1992), and probably the most widely distributed example of the cross.

    Thanks. It was just so strange how blue it became this time. Almost surreal.

    It isn't a very reliable bloomer by the way. I know when my C. mossiae and walkeriana will flower but this one is tricky. Something triggers it but I don't really know what that is.
