    This a coerulea version of the species I showed very recently. Small flowers, not opening too well, but a rather nice colour. I showed the same plant, here, almost 12 months ago ( it flowered 2 weeks earlier this year) with 4 flowers, one of which was deformed. So a big improvement in flower count - about 9 now - and colour, and all perfect flowers.
