Donna,

I thought you might :) Do you think it is similar to Autumn Lady?
I also liked the mini Pink Pizzazz, which they said was in limited supply (in case you might be interested - :) . J

No, Autumn Rose Lady has reticulatum in it and this one I'm fairly sure does not. That said, it's still very pretty if it blooms true to its picture! I think this is an Israeli bulb and I've been happy with most of the Israeli bulbs that I have.

I never noticed the Pink Pizzazz, I'll have to take another look...

Donna☺☺☺.

I just took a look at Pink Pizzazz and last year I bought Pink Flush from ETGB which is a similar color and it has yet to bloom! It was a large bulb and so far it's just sitting there still doing nothing!

Here is a link for the Pink Flush from last year..

What a shame that Pink Flush is sulking - pretty flower. I ordered Pink Pizzazz because of the size. Love, love big flowers (both doubles and singles) but would also like to find a true mini - where the leaves and flowers are smaller. And if its pink - well all the better!! J

Thank you for showing this!
"Glee" is, I say without doubt, one Papilio Hybrid. Not only the thin red edges on the segments, but also the subtle folding of the lowermost segment is revealing.
The color profile is very appealing, but the shape is not perfect: The butterfly wings do not "lean against" the neighbouring segments of the outer circle of segments. However IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE - then "catch one if you can".
