Description
I know, these have been everywhere lately, but had to throw mine into the ring. I bought this plant 6 years ago or so after my Aunt died during Hurricane Isabel. Chose it because of the name. Divided it this year and this is the first time its grown more than one lead. Currently there are 2 flowers with buds developing in another sheath. Enjoy smile

This was my first white Catt and is still my favorite. I knew it was Angel Bells 'Suzie' before opening the post, just by looking at the photo on the right of the screen. BGIL

No, this was like 40 years ago! I was not a good grower at that time. The one I have now have been with me for about 6 years.

Thanks for the reminder, Chris. I wonder if mine will ever bloom again.. Had it for ten years now, flowered six years ago if I remember right.

LOL thanks Mokeck! Think so? I feel like I've taken a few that were better than this. This feels out of focus to me. I use what amounts to a simple point and shoot digital camera, and I find I often have issues with getting them in good focus. But I'm getting better with color, having just discovered the wonders that the saturation slider can do. Plus, I'm not a professional photog, and photography isn't my hobby so I don't feel driven to be perfectionist about the picture quality.

Chef, what kind of light are you giving it? As you can see from the leaves on this and the BLC George King next to it, they get a LOT of light. The BLC looks a lot better now after I began treating it with epsom salts to counteract the high light/heat of my brick oven recessed balcony. Unlike most, a little sunburn doesn't bother me since the plants eventually acclimate to that light level. Strong light = strong blooms around here.
