A very good week!
Finally, some open blooms to share!
I'm trying not to be pouty about the fact that I have so many trees and so few inflos when I should be grateful that the ones I have are so wonderful. They really are wonderful this year, and most opened up for the first (or second) time this week.
Check out my repeat bloomer, Heirloom:
Such a cool contrast between maroon buds and soft orange blooms!
This was a surprise bloom, from a Kauai souvenir "Red" packaged cutting:
It looks and smells just like Kauka Wilder.
Can anyone guess what this is? It's another repeat bloomer for me:
How about now?
A little more open:
Another really nice scent, not as strong as Aussie Confetti, but rich, and a beautiful bloom shape with good size.
Lonnie, here is the first bloom on the same Hoya cutting I gave you:
The flowers look and feel like velveteen.
That's it for now. Leona Hoke, Lemon Drop and maybe Pink Diamond will be open tomorrow. Scent reports to follow!
