    Default Toothpick Happy again

    This is an updated picture of the Iwanagara Appleblossom I posted a few weeks ago. The color has faded out of it and gives it a different character. I got a bit toothpick happy and crossed it with my Diac. Chantilly Lace

    Only takes a toothpick to make you happy, huh Ron? :-)

    Seriously though, what a good idea! The Chantilly Lace is lovely and the Apple blossom is one of my favorites. I hope the wonderful fragrance passes on to the next generation! Is the Chantilly Lace as large a plant as the Appleblossom?

    No Chantilly lace is a smaller plant

    The chantilly has such a great little shape. It would be something if the flower takes on the bloom size of the Iwanagara Appleblossom but retains the shape and coloring of the Chantilly Lace.

    sure thing Becky. I am considering having it grown out in Hawaii, it will cost more to do this but they will get to blooming size so much quicker and I am not super patient
