I felt the same way when I first saw a moquettianum, the petals were too short and extremely hairy that looked like caterpillars to me but all that changed in time and now I actually like it. It looks awfully cute but not beautiful as the long petalled ones.Originally posted by Heather
I came across victoria-regina today and wondered about that...whether you had it and all...I am not a huge fan of moquettieanum tho. JMO! I think the short petaled ones are terribly inproportionate. Remind me of 19th c. folk portraiture.
