Frilly, in order to get a tentative ID you will need a few more photos from different angles showing the hafts and beard. You will need to get some measurements like height and size of bloom. I hope this helps. Smiling

yes, it has poly blooms maybe as much as 1/3 to a 1/2 the time.
I don't have any other photos of it.

well height is about 8 inches at the most, and the blooms are probably 4 inches across.

It's aqua coloring should help narrow it down.

You don't know if it will grow until you try!

I did 2 searches of the database but did not find any that fit. Many were similar but did not have the same markings. There are a lot of older SDBs that don't have photos in the database. Sorry I couldn't help! Shrug! It's very cute though, so who cares about the name! Thumbs up
