A Junzi is a wise man who has learned
and grown from his life experiences. Here JUNZI is a ruffled cream with
a violet black eye and edge and a green throat. This is a rather common
color combination in the eyes and edges and I have bloomed thousands of
them. So, what makes JUNZI so special? Is it the consistency of bloom,
wide blunt sepals, flatness, nice color contrast or clarity of colors?
I think it may be all of these things. Add to this a fabulous plant and
flower presentation and early bloom with repeat bloom and you hopefully
have the kind of flower a Junzi would select. Fertile both ways
