my first blooms of the season

edubose98(8)November 10, 2012

Could have mislabels? The tall one is Minerva and the short one red lion but the buds look the same to me. They came from wal-mart so I am expecting mislabels.

You're right..they look the same to me too! Anyway they look healthy so that's half the battle..keep us posted when they open..looks like it's gonna be twins!!

Here is a pic of the bloom opening up this morning. It is definitely a mislabel from wal-mart. Its not a red lion nor Minerva. What is it? This is without a flash.

Gee you lucked out! It's very pretty! I've got a no-id pink that I bought years ago and it looks very similar to yours..so is this the one you've got two of?

Those white tips on each petal should offer some hint!!
Hmmm....Emaryllis.com has an extensive photo library that's good for searching for unknowns....

I like pink!!

It looks like to me Cantate "03". Can anyone confirm this for me?

Well I forced it to open up a bit...tore one of the petals trying to do it so don't think I will be doing that again. Wanted to take a better pic to post. It looks more red in this pic than the other ones....do they change colors some what as they open up?

I have several that have that lighter stripe in the middle of each petal. There's a post going on right now about H. Desire....could this be that same bloom??

Depending on the true color it could be several varieties.. when you post a picture with the truest color let us know which one it is..the first one was pink much different than the last... I'm liking the first color best so far...

I purchased this under the name "Cantate" - this is a very robust Hybrid. "Once you got it you will have it forever"

"Cantate" Together with "UnderTheLadder" (Right Side)

To my untrained eye both Amigo and Cantate-03 could be possible candidates.
Very nice flower and of great color, congrats!

Thanks! Now if I can just figure out which one...but I do have an Amigo that I bought in a box kit and it is about to bloom so maybe I can go by that unless it is a mislabel. I had what was suppose to be red lion bloom today and it is also a mislabel and it is exactly the same bloom as the other one. Geez!
