    Default Hoku Gem 'Freckles'

    I seem to be blooming my little catts like crazy - wish somr of the standards would bud up! Anyway - this one is a whole bouquet on one stem - and a nice fragrance too. Nice green, red, yellow color combo - but no freckles...???

    Sorry , I hate to tell us this but it is not Hoku Gem Freckles , it is Burana Beauty 'Burana' HCC/AOS. I have both sitting next to each other in the green house . Thought you would want to know . It is very pretty . Gin

    I new it couldn;t be 'freckles', but Burana Beauty - I did not remember it as having green and yellow coloring with red splash... Ah, well, as one gets older... guess I better go look for the pot with the right tag. Wonder what will be in that one?!?! LOL

    Yep, Burana Beauty, without a doubt! Sure is pretty though. The little ones may be little, but they seem to bloom far more often.....

    No - thanks for the offer. I knew I had one (Burana Beauty) in my collection, when I did repotting in spring must have mixed up tags, I had about 15 to repot and kinda rushed.... I'll just retag it and see what surprises bloom next!! I do love the fragrance on this one.
