    I love Hoku Gem!!! It is one of the very best nodosa type hybrids if not the best. I didn't know you had lost power during that vortex. I am so sorry. I lost most of my collection when I was growing previously many years ago when we went without power for 3 days in the winter. I really, really need to break down and get a generator for my new greenhouse. Thanks to a suggestion from the contractor we have 2 heaters so if 1 fails the other can handle things fairly well. Best wishes in the new year and thanks again for the site!!!

    That is such a cute, cheerful sunny looking flower, just the thing in the winter darkness! Obviously it has a little bit of the sun in it, no wonder it survived!

    This is a really neat hybrid. The big spots are great.
    Sorry about your greenhouse last year. Did you loose a lot of plants?

    Even Florida got hit. Most ppl think of 20s and 30s as cold that is normal. But to a Floridian it feels worse. Trust me I grew up in Ohio where 50s was pleasant. Now 50s to me is like what 30s use to be. So when it dropped down to the
    20s...brrrrrr. Now its global warming all over again. Temps in the 70s most times and its Jan. I know its Florida but this time a year it is not normal.

    I am just glad that something beautiful was able to survive something so ugly and come out a winner. Beautiful BD thanks for the inspiring photo.
