    Love these little blooms. They make such a cool color shift as the bloom ages due to the Bl Richard Mueller parent.

    I need to work with mine. It has slowed down lately and I think it needs a repot. You have a nice bloom count there...and they are so pretty.

    Beautiful vibrant colour. I have a fondness for the freckles.

    Well grown. Congrats.

    A good flower count, indeed. Most Hoku Gems that I have seen produce only 2 or 3 flowers per spike.
