    Default Dtps Purple Martin 'Champion'

    I've had this for a couple years and really love the color. I don't usually have good luck with phals, so I'm glad this one is making it. I've just sprayed it for mealies, which is why it looks shiny. Has three flowers open now and I think three more to come.

    The flowers are small, about an inch or so in diameter. It also came with two baby plantlets intertwined in the roots, which I've tried to rescue and put in a different pot.

    It's a cross between Dtps Kenneth Schubert FANGtastic Violet and Phal violacea var. coerulia.

    Very cute! It reminds of kids sucking on blue popsicles and sticking out their purple tongues!
