Gardeners' Notes:

Caribbean Blue has been a beautiful choice, with bright medium blue flowers with white or greenish edging.

Caribbean Blue blooms pretty continuously, going through contiguous cycles of bloom.

Caribbean Blue (9518) 12/17/2005 (Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses/P. Sorano) Semidouble-double lavender-blue star/white edge. Medium green, plain. Standard

The photo that I uploaded is the first bloom of plant I raised from a leaf cutting! The bloom itself is almost 2 inches across! I grow in natural light in a south window (no direct light). Because it is grown cool, there is green within the geneva edge. If it is grown warm, you will normally see no green. This is a beautiful cultivar and a great grower!
