    One of the loveliest I have seen. Wish mine would bloom so I could see their coloration. Congratulations on a real beauty.

    I used to have three different clones but two of them died last year from Black Rot I feel especially sorry about L. tenebrosa 'Oscurissima'x self. According to vendor and the name it was a very dark clone. I never saw it blooming.

    Thanks everyone. While very dark and pretty, I still like the a-typical form like Connie had posted recently. Since this is a first blooming I can only imagine it could get better. Next year maybe a few more blooms.
    Betty, no fragrance.
