Hi,

I suppose it shouldn't surprise me...but I didn't know you could cross these two. Is the flower fully open Or shall we expect updates in the future, Pieter?

I'll post a body shot next week when I'm back at home. To be clear: it's not me who created this cross, it were the guys at epric in Holland who should get the credit. About the growth I can say it grows fast and strong.

An update. Now one week later the flower is much better developped as can be seen in these photo's.
lateral view
front view (tubular tepals well visible).

The tepals are tubular and I can see stamens and a pistil.
