New Orleans Lady has it's first flush. For some reason I always get a number of deformed blooms with the first flush that resolve with subsequent flushes. It is one of my favorites and if I could only have one this would probably be it. NOL has the most wondeful fragrance.

Here's a few more that are in bloom. I'm sick of pink. The light pink one is Halo Peach but it's definitely pink, not peach.

A datura that's opening. A mini hippeastrum. This is the 4th time this year that it's bloomed and a Psycho White plumeria.

Sorry everything's so blurry. I couldn't tell until I uploaded them.

They all look great Karyn. I am in LOVE with New Orleans Lady, that has to be my all-time favorite color. I too am sick of pink, of all the brugs I now have, only pink has been blooming. Sigh.

Great pics. NOL is one of my favorites too.
What is the one that is not all the way open yet, 2 pics below superspot?

RE: nol

Yummy, what beautiful coloring on NOL! Is it a psycho white plumeria because it came out pink?

RE: nol

Shawn I was almost positive that was a Day Dreams but now that it's opened I'm not so sure. They are triples and I'll see if the inner most skirt drops. I occasionally got triples on my DD's last year but the tube is much longer on this one. You can see where those evil green worms chewed the blooms. They chewed completely thru several buds that I snapped off. I hate those things!

Wow Karyn! you do have a lot of 'pink' going on, thank you so much for sharing! I am afraid I will not see blooms at all until fall this year. So sad, everything started blooming in early July last year.

Blasted bugs :( guess I will just have to enjoy your flowers instead!

Hmmmm...I don't know Karyn, my DayDreams never bloomed and I lost it this past winter, so I'm not sure what the blooms look like.

Could it possibly be Angel's Exotic? It has far separated skirts like that.

RE: nol

2 years ago all I wanted was pink now I'm sick of it. It's not that I don't like them but I'd really like to see a nice yellow or orange.

Shawn it's possible that it's one of the Angels but I'm not sure. Here's two of my DD's plants blooms from last season. They look nothing alike except for the color.

Beautiful blooms, Karyn! My DayDreams look completely different this year too. I think it's the heat. Lots of bud drop and the couple that open, skirt drops but doesn't open all the way...???
