You can if you like. I suspect I'm seeing the same plants you are, so the
photos may be superfluous. So far, I've only had two clones bloom from the
1. A blue bitone, small falls a bit pinched and tucked, orange crest with
white markings. The standards are mid to light blue, the falls are medium
blue-violet, not very dark.
Is it CLAIRETTE?
2. A large-flowered very dark violet self, with long segments, flaring
falls, and an unusually large amount of white blotching around the crest.
Is it PAULINE?
Here's what I know they're not: Joyce, Harmony, Cantab, J.S.Dijt, Violet
Beauty, I. reticulata cult. (pretty sure).
