    Nice little easy to grow dend. Striping is interesting. I've got five or so more swollen nodes. First flowering for me. Four flowers from one node.

    Great striped blooms! I have been thinking about getting a dend. victoriae reginae for awhile now. Your cross there makes me want it even more.

    Cheers,

    I love the fuschia buds and purple blooms. Great combination.

    Clint, any victoriae-reginae hybrid would certainly be a beauty, as yours is! But the plant does look large. And large is scary.

    Clint, you have that Dend's number dialed in. Luminous blooms, viagorous stalks, shiny leaves. It's got it all. How tall can this type grow?
