It's beautiful Pat. Your mother would be pleased, I'm sure.
Was Papilio the pollen or seed parent? And... Who was its partner?

I am still waiting for some of my crosses to bloom. Slow going!!!

Well done, again!!

Very nice. Has it bloomed before, or did you get two scapes the first time?

Thanks y'all. It has bloomed over the past 4 or 5 yrs. It's a cross of Lemon Lime onto Pappilio.
