    Someone told me 'She Shu' means 西施 in Chinese, who is the most beautiful woman in the ancient time. It got a nice fragrance.

    I love the colours and shape of the blooms! And the plant looks so compact!

    She Shu or Xi Shi was one of the famous four beauties in ancient china. I believe she is the most beautiful and celibrated of the four. My mom knows more about them. We have chinese embroidery, painting and porcelain vases deplicting the four beauties in the house.

    Hmm, why do they call the clone "She Shu"? Maybe Xi Shi was short too? Just kidding, Qing! Love this catt of yours and the flowers! Gorgeous!

    ....Xi Shi is mandarin and She Shu is cantonese. Is that correct? There are too many languages in China.
