    Default Bc. Mount Hood Mary (rescue)

    This morning I went to visit a friend who is moving overseas and looking through the collection I came accross this one. The flowers had been open for about a week now, and the high winds and rain which we have been having has taken a toll, plus some more in getting it home in a hot car.
    I am so excited that I had to post the Pic. just in case it never again blooms for me.
    The flowers are 71/2 inches accross, and the fragrance is divine. The plant itself needs some TLC which I have started to work on.
    Wish me luck

    What a great find. Mount Hood 'Mary' AM/AOS is an award winning cross. In fact Rlc. or Bc. Mount Hood has won 30 awards and 'Mary' has 2. I'm sure it'll bloom again next year for you. Good luck.
