    Default Rly. Swan's Shy 'Waringah'

    Yet another plant I usually flower much later in the year & it can flower twice a year.
    Both halves of the plant are flowering also.
    I know my Catts are growing well though I'm always looking to improve, this flowering issue has got me confused.
    Have to blame "climate change", its blamed for everything else. (total BS)

    I think complex hybrids have a rather fluid development cycle - by which I mean one year's growth can go one way oil terms of speed of development ready for flowering, and the next growth can be a bit different; this will account for variations flowering time.
    Good clean white flowers are always a joy. It looks as though these have a decent substance to them, too.
