Couple of snapshots

This first picture is of a walmart bulb that I got last season after they were on clearance and their scapes aborted. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when it bloomed. It has one of the most perfect whites I have ever seen in my opinion. Here it is.

The other is one that I saw at a flower show and I took a picture of the flower because I liked it, but foolishly forgot to shoot the id. Maybe you can help. It was something with the word "Isle" in the name if I remember correctly.

That striped thing looks very, very good. Excellent proportions - behold the nice broad "butterfly wings" and the broad midribs. It would not surprise me, if this hybrid originated from "Ambiance".

RE: Couple of snapshots

The red striped looks like "Lipstick" to me, but there may be other varieties that look like that. It does have a slight red picotee on the petals edges, right?
Whoever it is, it's gorgeous!

RE: Couple of snapshots

I think you got it. It does appear to have a very light picotee on some of the tepal edges. Now the next question is where can I get one? Anyone know?

"Lipstick" is the correct suggestion!
Thank you, Betonklotz!

RE: Couple of snapshots

I have no idea where to get one, but I would love to know too. I have found some pics of Lipstick some while ago and saved them to my computer. This one is on my "must-have"-list!
