My purpurata’s are happy, and so am I. We were able to have a judging this past weekend and my v. rubra garnered a CCE/AOS 91 points.

Congrats!

Stunning presentation and dark rubra color. I might have nominated an HCC lol.

What are the size dimensions and the award description?

Is this in Florida?

Gorgeous - well grown and very well deserved award!

As I'm new to Catts - dabbling in smaller species - maybe you Catt-people here, could help me out with a question: how do you succeed in getting the plants to bloom in such a regular, allround fashion as your plant seems to be such a nice example of, t(r)omp (Sorry, just couldn't help myself! 😁😁😁)?
