    Default Couldn't resist - Dpts Hybridizers Dream 'Carmela'

    I saw this beauty online and just could not resist buying it. It is a very small plant, about 4" leaves, the blooms are about 3" tho... The purple is darker than shows in the photo, and the edges are pure white. But it's the shape that really caught my eye(s).

    That is an amazing color combo! I can see why it has 'dream' in its name.

    Cheers,

    Gorgeous, Diane! Reminds me of my beautiful mom with her bright lipstick after at day at the beach - glowing, smiling, happy, pink from the sun! Great choice!

    Diane that's gorgeous! It looks very like my (Little Steve x King Shiang's Rose) x Carmela's Pixie, except your band of white around the edge is about 3 times as thick as mine. (I wich someone would register both the maternal and the whole cross, as that is just too unweildy a name!)

    Thanks for sharing your dtps with us!
