One of the rarer color forms of this species. The blue flamea markings are quite large and deep in color. Will be useful in future breeding for this type.

Plant arrived November about 4 months ago, rooted and bloomed (upside down lol). Still not as strong yet to reach potential flower form and size. Maybe another year or two.

Haven’t decided on cultivar name yet. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your kind comments. Looking forward to see how these genes perform.

Maybe it should be called ‘Back to the Future’ lol.

Really special! I hope you self it. I've never seen or even heard of a coerulea flamea.

The plant is too weak now to carry a pod. I may breed it with some of my future intended purchases. I have my eye on two more trianae coerulea flameas in the US (originally from Japan).
