Hi everyone!

I just wanted to share my first blooms of the season. I got this healthy rooted cutting on eBay last month. It took about 3 weeks to finally see these beautiful flowers. I'm very much in love with MG right now!

The first bloom emerged when the temps were in the 60s. After a hot and humid weekend, the second bloom appears today with a wonderful contrast in colors.

She's beautiful! You're right, Bill, it's a very distinctive-looking flower.

How's the scent?

I have 2 new blooms that open today! Temps are in the 80s now and my plumies really love it. I still bring them inside at night because it still gets to the upper 50s here.

05-16-201, 2 more blooms emerge today


irun5k, I agree with you! Her true colors really show after the heat and humidity :)

kms2, houstontexas123, and Laura, thank you so much! Laura, I saw from your post that you have so many inflos appearing...I can't wait to see those beauties of yours bloom for you as well!

Jen and Bill, I agree with you! MG has got to be the most unique one I have (hence, my favorite!). Her scent is different as well, I smell a peachy and floral fragrance. Bill, I bet you have a large MG tree in your garden, mine is only about 18" tall so there's no way these blooms can compare to yours. Does your MG bloom true to her color in your climate?
