    Oh dear, don't let Pat fool you with the fragrance of this one. That is why he said they smell like pancake (how about pancake batter?). Hehheeee ... C. percivaliana is not known for its pleasant fragrance but for its most unagreeable smell among the catts. Taking one whiff of it and you will recoil in horror. The end result? A splitting headache for hours on end, even days ...heheheee ... E-VEAL me again huh?

    But this one, the blooms are so gorgeous, full petals, frilly edges, THE BEST I have seen. The fragrance, well well let's not go there, shall we?

    That is gorgeous! I must have a percivaliana but something tells me they're not all that beautiful. Thank you for sharing it.
