    It's lovely, Lien! It has strong species characteristics, so I had to look it up. The name is correctly:
    Catt. Granier's Blue Elegance. 'Natalie' was just awarded the AM/AOS in Oct 2005. The same plant was awarded an HCC/AOS in 2003, so I'm guessing yours is a division of the awarded plant.

    It's a cross between two primary hybrids and is:
    25% bowringiana
    25% loddigesii
    25% gaskelliana
    25% warneri
