Seedling OS1 opening into a beautiful inflo
My Orange Splendor seedling #1 started out with a bloom that looked a lot like Veracruz Rose, but has now taken on a different shape.
These are thick-petaled flowers, very long lasting, and they smell just like the Lei Rainbow lei I got in Kauai.
First day open:

This is the now very overgrown seedling patch. Sheesh, these things grew like mad this year!
I expect at least one more seedling to bloom next year, but many will have to be sold or given away to make room. There are too many for me to keep. I wish I could fit them into boxes to ship out but they're just too big now!
And George, here is the inflo on the (now rooted) TC you sent me:
The camera cannot capture that intense crimson color! And the blooms fade to a fuchsia, then purple. Beautiful!
