I love the way the petals sweep back. Does that make it a steller?

Cheers,
Russ

Steller is a classification I found on Swan Island's site, and is what one of my favorites, Raspberry Punch, is. Unfortunately mine hasn't bloomed yet otherwise I'd post my own pic.

Cheers,
Russ

Vassio Meggos is classed an Informal Decorative.
Raspberry Punch is classed as a Formal Decorative.

There's no such thing as a stellar informal decorative.

Stellar is a completely different form- the petals on stellars are more seperate, thinner & more pointed.

If Swan is classing these as stellars they aren't correct.

No plant lady it was me trying to fit the stellar into the thing. If you read there catalog they list the classifacations on the cover.

A very good picture Vikingcraftsman.

Easy to see that Vassio Meggos is a sport of the famous Spartacus.
