    Default BLC George King 'Serendipity'

    This lovely bloom is one of my favorites... I had a plant that had refused to bloom for me for a couple of years for I sent it to the 'spa' at Hoa's. He bloomed it beautifully the next cycle - but I never made it back to his place to pick it up. So last spring I bought a new one at a local show. First blooms, so they aren't too big. They will mature to a more peachy shade in a few days. They have a very nice, light fragrance.

    Very pretty King George there, Ms. Diane!

    Glad that the new plant blooms easily and beautifully for you.
    The other plant, I am sad to say that it died a while back along with a few other precious plants of mine. Sorry for that. Cause(s), not sure ... However, I think the old plant was very hard to bloom (maybe due to the cloning process, resulting in some mutations). Its death takes the burden off so we are free to buy a better clone. Hurrah for that ... hehehehe ... Your Blc. Chia-Lin is still alive. I think it is about to bloom, I hope I remember it right ...
