    Default Blc. Dora Louise Capen 'Lea'

    Got this in early April from a big box store in a 4" pot as a blooming sized division. The new lead sprang up quickly and grew very fast...I'm really impressed with the vigor of this hybrid. Flowers are about 6" across and wonderfully fragrant.

    Clint,
    That is gorgeous! Great photo as well!
    Do you think the yellow color will mature some more and give you a more intense hue?

    Cheers. Hoa.
