That's a lovely white against the dark green leaves. It even looks like it would smell good!

"Gorgeous" Laura!
I'm loving this one too! And smells soooo good!
One big cutting, blooming and doesn't seem to be slowing it up at all. I'm glad I'm getting to enjoy the blooms but am ready to cut them off if I have to.

Sorry about not posting sooner but it's been crazy, haven't even watered plumies in over 2 weeks now....poor babies.
Luv the HK with the Pool in the back ground (she was photo bombed by the pool ..lol). Your baby looks GORGEOUS with the super healthy dark green leaves and the pristine white flowers, sometimes you will get multiple 7 petaled flowers. The leaves and scent are what make HK my top fav white. You do such a great job with all your plumies, and I am sure HK is super happy @ your place as she has a pool in her new home, very spa like for her lol. Thanks for sharing the pic and the update :)

Can't believe how fast your progress is on your HK, looks great. Virginia Bch must be incredible for plumies in the summer. Are you growing HK in your house, I see carpeting or a rug on the floor? Does she have her own guestroom lol ?
I call that southern hospitality. Glad HK is doing so well for you and Laura. Thanks for sharing the beautiful picture of her.

Thanks Peg!! I do love this and I'm so glad you received this cutting from a very nice person! It a beauty and your cutting looks like it's ready to take off with leaves and inflos at the same time !! ðÂÂÂ

Hi James ! Don't worry about posting late. I'm the one who is late to post all of the time. We all know that we have busy lives!! ð±

Thanks for the awesome compliments ! I also like the look of the pool behind this beauty. It is happy and very healthy ! You are so kind to see how they are really doing. I work at it and it pays off!!! ðÂÂÂ

Lol. Photo bombed by the pool. To funny !! Virginia beach is a great place to grow during the summer but we have to bring them in ð«. It's all worth it though !!

I'll let peg respond. She roots in her home and they do get TLC!!

Take care!!

Actually, depending on the month/season, my HK flowers get 3 to 3 1/2", I rarely get 2" to 2 1/2" blooms anymore, does size really matter..lol ? I guess depending on the maturity of the plant also as the first couple years I had her the blooms were smaller. Is HK everygreen for you, in my patch the leaves usually stay on all winter till late spring, like April/May then they all drop. Well hope all is well for you

James - Thanks I too don't post as much as I'd like to. For some reason GW always gives my computer problems and can usually only get to a couple posts before it slows and locks up. Old computer running on a wing and a prayer :)

I do all my rooting in the house as I don't have a good spot outside to do it. In the house I can control it better too. I've got a couple of those 5 shelf greenhouses so that AC doesn't bother them. Grow lights and fans and heat mats pans of water, takes care of their needs. I do have to watch out for those pesky spider mites though. I use them in the winter to keep any baby/newer rooted ones in over the winter. If they keep growing that's fine and I give them more water then. If they drop leaves I let them go dormant and cut way back on water.

HK and Sundance are doing great but don't see any roots showing yet. They do have to share a room though! No shelves in it for these two! HK was out of her greenhouse running around when I snapped the the pic :)
I'm really loving this one and can understand why it would be your top fav.
