    Default Schomburgkia Thompsoniana X Iwan. Apple Blossom 'Fantastic'

    This is the second time this plant has bloomed, but I didn't take pic last time. This plant has also taken about 5 years to grow to bloom size, and I am quite happy with the results of the cross. It has kept most of the apple blossom traits, and the schomb has just added a little undulation to the petals and sepals. I have about 30 more plants of this cross, and 10 more are also spiking so I will update when the others bloom, and we can all see how much each flower varies! Enjoy

    It's beautiful, Aaron. Like a blossom in a dream that drops from a unicorn's mane.
