    Default Sc Beaufort 'South River' AM/AOS

    Some of you may be familiar with my quest to locate Slc Dream Weaver and/or its parents. One of its parents is Slc Fire Fantasy. The other is Sc Beaufort. Now I have half of the combination I need for that cross. Actually I have half of the parentage for quite a number of different crosses, including Renee's NEWEST favorite: Slc Dream Catcher. Slc Bright Angel is the other parent of that one. Fortunately I know of a source of some NBS Dream Catchers!!!

    But isn't this one just too cute anyway? It is a true mini standing barely 3" tall. The foliage is not in the greatest of shape and I am communicating with the seller as to why it got to my house with at least one extra unwanted traveler. The flower is much nicer than the picture he had posted on his site.

    Best of all Renee likes it!!!

    (sorry for the poor picture, it was getting dusky and it was taken hand held.)

    Default Wow!

    An orangy-yellow, red Beaufort. Up until now, I've only seen the yellow ones. I love the sunset mini-catts...

    Thanks, Ron, but under the circumstances that might be a bad choice of words.



    But I do know what you mean though. The spread of the flower is only about 1.75 inches.

    That colour is really lovely - I can see why they call them sunset colours.

    Very cute!

    Steven, do keep in mind in your hunt for Dreamcatcher, that it too can show a quite a bit of variation in coloration unless you'r getting a mericlone.

    Yes, I have seen that. The vendor shows three flowers of varying color. We also like the form of the flower much better than Dream Weaver as well: rounder and flatter.
