Very compact for a seedling standing about 3 feet tall

Texture is very good
shape very nice
thick petals
Leaves ruffled
Scent cinnamon

A stunner even if only in a mothers eyes..

Maybe a name with Silk as it seems that is one of her attributes.
Also she is very elegant.

Day 4
Still Amazing & now we got bloom 2

Bloom size is big least 3 1/2 inches on a small plant in a 3 gallon so I'd say she might come in around 4 inches

I'm seeing the Mardi Gras in her but without the yellow
& shes deeper in color

I'm still in love

:blink:

New buds are a really rich deep color not quite captured by pics.
Okse bloom is fading & has a real nice color...

Still loving her...

More purple with the heat
Pics don't capture the depth
Fade is extreme to a whitish with pink orange center
Just thrilled with this seedling
