    I like tiny plants, I can fit more of them in my growing area. The bloom is lovely, I like the color.

    What a gorgeous primary hybrid.

    This would be C. (Lc.) Janet (1897) (intermedia x pumila). There is also C. Janet (1945), a more complex big floofy type Catt.

    There were 13 AOS awards 1987-1998, nothing before, and 41 registered crosses with C. Janet (1897) beginning in 1992. So it appears Janet was remade about 1980. It is more likely yours came from that group or another remake inspired by that flurry of awards than from the original cross. I think the flower quality is too good to have come from the early less selected splashed forms of C. intermedia.

    Spot on with the research Kirk. I couldn't remember date at time of posting. I've always thought it was a remake. To be honest it couldn't be anything else.
    I've used it in one crossing & some should flower in the next year or so. It is a remake I since found out but have only found one pic of a flower from registration I suppose. Doesn't look much like what I thought the cross would be except I don't know what clones of the parents were used..
