blurry image with olaf
My guess is it could be a Tosca (with little white at tip only)
I hope you will show us how it changes over time. It is interesting.
I think it looks like 'Tosca' but I could be wrong as it hasn't bloomed for me yet.
David, On this wonderful website at the top of the page is a Tosca that looks (to me) very similar to yours..
Here is a link that might be useful: Tosca
yes, that website photo looks exactly like mine. 7"+
but when i go back to RC for official photo, the curling petal and red veining look different. Again, when i look at Hatta's Tosca, my petal is less pointed. Anyway, it's really, really nice.
Looking much more beautiful now...
I am not sure if yours is Tosca. It has the colour of Tosca but it does not behave like Tosca :-)
My Tosca that I purchased in Feb 2009 bloomed in Mar 2009 like this
And the petals will get frilly and pointed when the flower matures
This a reblooming Tosca in Dec 2010. It gets full sun from 7 am to 7pm, with daytime temperature of 35C and night temperature of 26C :-). The veinings are more pronounced.
Yes, Hatta. i agreed with you. pretty close but not totally the same.
my flower stay almost the same after few days. Didn't get frilly. I also noted your Tosca has an somewhat green eye, and mine is totally dark red. The veining is less profound.
a very close sibling, i guess.
BTW, your Tosca is lovely.
Here's the other photo i took with a taiwanese double
Solo of the taiwanese double, 'qi li' 3 buds from a small bulb. still manage to produce 3 layers of petal. i hope it will improve next week as it's not suppose to be a mini.
It's pretty, but it's not Tosca....
Very pretty...make sure and send the seller a photo so they can ID it for you. I got an unreleased bulb last year in place of Tosca...it was definitely a keeper too!
This one is definitely a keeper.
one of the taiwanese website named it as showmaster, and, my supplier said it's a charisma.
so whatever it's, it will be my 'keeper'
