Finally a bloom

My P. incarnata bloomed today. I kept it inside all witer because it was small when cold temps hit. I took several cuttings from it over winter but only got 50% to strike. I now have 5 plants but only 2 in the ground as of now. I didn't realize how fragrant they are. Smells very nice and has had a few visitors today. I don't think pollination will BEE a problem lol. Here's my first bloom.

Beautiful!

Did you start this one? From seed or cutting?

I started the original plant from seed last summer. Now that I think about it the original plant got infested with spidermites and died. This is the first cutting that struck.

Very nice!! I am starting to collect P. incarnatas from all over, and would love to add this to my collection if you get seeds. I am sure I have something to trade for it that you might like. Check out my trade list sometime. No hurry...

Thanks,
Eric
