Default C. labiata, forma coerulea

Most call it variety coerulea, but color variations should be defined as color forms. While coerulea flowers commonly are smaller than tipo, this one has good size.

Bought this one as a smallish seedling from Miranda in June 2018, when Francisco came to speak to DCOS. It grew well, and bloomed for the first time in Nov 2019. It has two leads now, with 3 & 4 flowers respectively:

Absolutely stunning! Shouldn't it be coerulescens (albescens + coerulea)? It look very pale colored.

You are probably right.

Those are fantastic. Congratulations. Miranda has great plants--if you have the patience to wait a couple of years to see them bloom and don't mind paying premium prices for small seedlings. Your labiata demonstrates that Fernando uses premium stock for his babies.
