    Nope. The unifoliate parent is typically a late spring bloomer, and is known to produce a double sheath. It's a Brazilian native.

    Good guess, Kevin, but no! Don't let that yellow throat trip you up.

    If you use the IOSPE, I'd go more for the unifoliate species with a very, very pale lavender petal and sepal. The yellow throat is misleading, and is in part from the bifoliate parent (the easier to identify!)

    Good guessing, though - this is a toughie!

    Maybe loddigesii? If this is one of the parents, the unifoliate parent would have a fuller form...I assume.

    Default Humph!

    Everyone's lost interest in my little guessing game. Sniff, sniff.

    The bifoliate parent is Catt. walkeriana. That influence is recognizable. Pat Mahon picked right up on it. The unifoliate parent is Catt. warneri. That would have been very hard to figure out. The lavender color is so pale I wonder if the C. warneri might have been a coerulea variation.

    The cross is Catt. Sea Breeze 'Blue Ribbon' HCC/AOS. She's pretty, even if you can't figure out who her parents were!

    Hey McJulie,

    No need to be so snifffffffffffffff up!!! Hehheeheeheheeee ....

    Your plant is so hard. Besides, if it is a coerulea clone as the name suggests, the flowers are pink! Really pink, my dear friend! I have seen the Sea Breeze coerulea clone and this one is so pink I wonder if it is at all!

    They're pinker in the photo than in regular light. I think the halogen shop lamp I'm using in my photo shoots throws a lot of yellow light, and I don't have Photoshop anymore, and its excellent color correction.

    Lavender, more than pink, but not really any hint of blue. It's a clone of the awarded plant, so perhaps it didn't get the best light during bud formation to bring out its color potential. It also opened very green and it took several days to get to the lavender. I thought it was going to be more green & white at first.

    So I don't know what var its parents were, but I still think it's a pretty flower. And it's nice to have a fall-blooming Catt!

    Tim-O, our dearest PoP, it wasn't your fault they snubbed our game...

    I think with the holidays upon us here in the U.S., everyone's preoccupied. Not to mention all the gazillions of new members and new posts. This place is giving me an ADD retention span!

    I know, this place has gone VAaaBOOooooMMMMM ... I wonder if I should just stick with our little thatch hut gang or expand the circle and initiate the newbies with our induction rite? Hehheheeee ...

    BTW, I still think there is a problem if it is the Sea Breeze coerulea. I have seen this plant and the flowers are very pale but still blue.
