    Default Bl. Yellow Bird

    1st flowers on this seedling. The petals and sepals are actually almost chocolate brown. The camera is not being co-operative. It's in a pot but I think it would look better mounted.

    Consider leaving it in a pot as it will grow into a very nice specimen plant with many flowers. Also, it will lose the bronze colour as it ages and turn into a nice deep yellow. Hope this helps you to decide what would be the best option.

    Really nice! I love the Mueller hybrids. I had Hoku Gem -big multi lead plant-but lost it to bacterial rot after a storm.

    That's a shame Jason. I'd like to find more of the nodosa hybrids.

    By the way congrats..... just keep in the pot for time being until you think you need to transfer another few more years.
