    Cool Blc. Greenwich 'Elmhurst' June 2013

    These blooms have already shifted in color to the more pale yellow. When they first opened they were a lovely green. Enjoy...

    I have three or four plants of it, Roy. This one is the first one to bloom and is in the highest light part of the greenhouse. I have another one with big buds opening that is in a bit more shaded area. I'll try to photograph it so everyone can see the pretty green of the blooms when they first open.

    Talking

    Thanks everyone. I thought I would update this thread with photos from another plant of BLC Greenwich Elmhurst that is blooming. I wanted to get phtots earlier in the bloom cycle to show how green the blooms are when they first open, but didn't think about it until I saw this one today. Anyway, it is still fairly green.

    What material did you use for the panels or panes in your greenhouse?

    Nice Catt, BTW. LOL

    It is called Lexan. It is an insulated polycarbonate material sold in sheets like tin. Here is a section shot so you can see how it is insulated.
