Couple of snapshots

radarcontactlost(8)April 20, 2011

This first picture is of a walmart bulb that I got last season after they were on clearance and their scapes aborted. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when it bloomed. It has one of the most perfect whites I have ever seen in my opinion. Here it is.

The other is one that I saw at a flower show and I took a picture of the flower because I liked it, but foolishly forgot to shoot the id. Maybe you can help. It was something with the word "Isle" in the name if I remember correctly.

That striped thing looks very, very good. Excellent proportions - behold the nice broad "butterfly wings" and the broad midribs. It would not surprise me, if this hybrid originated from "Ambiance".

The red striped looks like "Lipstick" to me, but there may be other varieties that look like that. It does have a slight red picotee on the petals edges, right?
Whoever it is, it's gorgeous!

I think you got it. It does appear to have a very light picotee on some of the tepal edges. Now the next question is where can I get one? Anyone know?

"Lipstick" is the correct suggestion!
Thank you, Betonklotz!

I have no idea where to get one, but I would love to know too. I have found some pics of Lipstick some while ago and saved them to my computer. This one is on my "must-have"-list!
