First blooming... was hoping for longer petals but I'm happy it bloomed this year -- thought these had to be larger.

Nicely grown Rita, I have had one or two of these in my time and would have thought the petals are about the right length for the species. I have a primary cross made with Delenati which will be in bloom later this year, pure pink and an interesting shape. As soon as it is in flower I will post it.

Thanks, guys! I'd love to see the delenatii cross... hope it has the long tresses! (I'm infaturated with long spiraling petals, a la sanderianum...)
