Slc. Mem. Trudi Marsh (Slc. Tangerine Jewel x Slc. Cosmic Delite) is a more recent introduction to mini-Catt breeding and is responsible for the Candy Stripe patterning, it’s a vigorous grower and flowers twice a year. Small plants under 6” will be fully mature in 3” pots, well-shaped, rounded flowers will be in red with yellow veins, a few solid reds will show themselves. Pot. Mem. Cristina Montero (Pot. Hisako Jewel x Slc. Cosmic Delite) are beautifully shaped flowers with bold flaring, they are robust growing mini plants. This combination will capitalize on the lip colour expressing it on the petals. Twice a year blooming, the progeny will flower in 3” pots.
