    Default Peetersara Haw Yuan Bay 'She Shu'

    I think it was Qing who told us last year that 'She Shu' was the most beautiful Chinese woman. This little plant sure is! P-bulbs are only about 5" tall and produce 3" flowers. The shape is really nice and the texture is a little thicker than most Bro. sanguinea hybrids...Got it last year in bloom about this time as a gift. Frangrance is ever-so-nice!

    still beautiful as before. I love this compact plant
    ....name change to Peetersara i see. I'd need a lot of help re-labelling then....

    I wondered if my Haw Yuan Bay 'West Beauty' is the same plant once again. The resemblence is so similar. She Shu is 西施, and I think 'She' means west but I am not %100 sure (two diff grex name in bad translation somehow?)

    I have mine in bloom as well. I just noticed the fragrance this morning.

    She Shu does translate to west beauty.
