large white bloms?

violetta1976(8 Portland OR)August 29, 2007

I stumbled upon this pic and fell in love with the huge cotton ball blooms at the lower right:

I was thinking it might be Nancy Leigh, but I can't find a good pic of Nancy Leigh online, so I'm not sure. The site I found the pic on is in Russian, so I have no idea what the label says.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a similar plant?

Violetta, Your plants are beautiful. How do you grow them? Under lights? What kind of plant stand? Pots? Watering? Etc.

Violetta,
Follow the link below and take a look at Ness' White Bear.
The photo seems to be a little pink but in reality it is a stark white blossom. If you have FC2 you can see a photo of White Bear there.

Thanks Fred, that's lovely! I found this pic of it, too - it's the one on the left.

Mary Beth, I WISH those were my plants! That's just a picture I stumbled on while surfing the internet for plants. :0)

I have Nancy Leigh and it's a beauty but it's really pale pink instead of white. I have two really nice solid white ones: Rhapsody in White and Gillian. You can see pictures of them in my Album on PhotoBucket.

How funny, I was actually looking at Gillian online last night! I'm thinking I might head in that direction. Where did you get yours?

Is it my imagination, or is there a little bit of green edging on the petals? In your pic it looks like there is, but not in this pic:

I started Gillian from a leaf bought last year from Lyndon Lyon. It is a pure white.
