Some Catts or whatever you want to call them anymore (confusion factor high).

C. Iron Clad 'Ace' - stupendous!

Pot. Morning Call 'Full Moon' - just another Catt these days, I'm guessing.

Lc. Mother's Life 'Blue Diamond' - yet another Catt convert?

C. walkeriana, missed the label on this one. Nobody does this species like Japanese growers, nobody!

C. coccinea 'Tokitoru'

C. coccinea aurea 'Ann'

Rl. glauca 'True Island' - at least this one ain't a Catt...for now...

How do they do that? All the flowers either face out in a perfect circle or they all face the viewer. What patience and technique.

Are these catts growing in sphagnum moss or is it just a top dressing?

I love picotee anything -- I've not seen this walkeriana variety before. It's a beauty. The other two are likewise impressive.
