    I'll let others hash out the cross/clone, but it is nice!

    VERY nice! The green/yellow center looks almost electric.

    Hi Cin,

    Blc. Meditation has an awarded cultivar, 'King's Ransom,' so I'd bet that 'Queen's Dowry' is a cultivar name. Blc. California Girl is not a parent, but possibly was itself crossed with Blc. Meditation. If that's the case then your plant would be:

    Blc. Mediatation 'Queen's Dowry' x Blc. California Girl = Blc. Izumi Girl

    No prob, Cin! Enjoy your lovely Christmas present!

    And Lynda, I spewed the lineage, but didn't say how pretty it was - there was lots of room for you to work with!
