This was a division from Michael Sinn a few years ago. Possible a secret weapon in Frank’s mini catt color breeding program. Huge overlapping petals and egg yolk large lip. NS 13 cm, larger than any other awards of this grex. Cross is Circle of Life x Oconee. First flower day one second pic was day two (more dark pink). Unfortunately there are yellow streaks in petals, making it a fatal flaw for judging.

Well, the pollen will be distributed to 3 different breeders to continue the wonderful shape and introduce new color variations. CoL is indeed a wonderful parent Oz.
