Finally we are starting to get bloom here!!!
This is a bloom from the orange-centered odorata that I mentioned in another thread.
I love it! This one is my favorite by far. The striking contrast with the apricot center is absolutely outstanding.
I saw this "new" violet, in Melbourne in July 2006. Dear ROb , where are you to explain?
Yes, Rob Peace does have an orange-centered odorata also (that he was going to call "Heart of Gold"). I haven't heard from him in a while, to hear if his seedling is still growing. I was afraid that I'd lost my seedling over the winter, but it surprised me, by being just fine. Rob sent me a picture of his orange-centered seedling, but I'm not sure if he'd want it posted, so I'll leave that to him. The two seedlings do seem to be different enough to tell apart, from the pictures.
Best wishes, Tom
Oh and I forgot -- thanks Stefan, I'm hoping to increase the size of the orange area in future generations.
I love that one too and I'd like to place my order for a future form with the orange on the outside of the petal!!! lol ;-))
