    Cool Potinara Hoku Gem 'Freckles'

    This is blooming for me for the first time. It was given to me some time back but had never bloomed. I just love the little Mueller crosses.

    IME, none of the Hoku Gems have a fragrance but they make up for that by being very easy growers and, usually, bloomers.

    Easy grower...yes. I think this one just missed Rich's tlc. I'm more of a casual grower than he is and i'm sure his 'chids miss him very much. lol S'okay, I sweet talk them and they get used to being neglected after awhile.
