Beauty Queen

kodom087 z9aJuly 17, 2014

My Beauty Queen had a couple of blooms about two weeks ago. I forgot to post about it. While it does resemble my Ploy Praky quite a bit there are some differences and I'll have to get pictures of them when the new buds currently on it get larger.

This is the first time it has bloomed for me and I haven't decided if I like it or not. I'm not particularly fond of the spotting.

Kirk,

You must remove it from your collection immediately!
I'm sure I could dispose of it for you! LOL

I think its beautiful.

Very nice flower shape, Kirk. But you know how I feel about this particular hue. Maybe it washes off lol

Kirk, this one has a very large bloom. Possibly the pink color will be different on next blooming?

You made me have a good laugh, Lonnie! If I end up deciding to part with Beauty Queen I'll definitely let you know. I want to see another bloom cycle before I make a final decision. I am considering a double graft with the Ploy Praky and this one since they are similar but slightly different.

Pagan, I totally know how you feel.

Rick, that's what I'm thinking. The bloom in the background has that faint strip down the middle of the petals and the one up front is splotchy. I'm just hoping it is more consistent in the next round of blooms.

Kirk, that is absolutely beautiful! It's like something on the front of a chocolate box. Stunning! I love it

Marie,

I found one today in Houston at the JRN Nursery on Breen Street.
It was a tip from Kirk to check them out. My wife and I visited today and they had just gotten in a new shipment. Sorry for the poor quality, my cell phone doesn't take high quality pics.

Lonnie, I know if you visit the nursery here, you will empty your pocket for them
Did you go to Chaya? He just down the street from JRN and the price is so much better.

Nice haul! Congrats. I can't wait to see pics of your Beauty Queen for comparison.

Glad you didn't leave Houston empty handed. I foresee many more visits in your future. *evil laugh*
