    Default Miltassia ? ID

    There is what I believe to be a Miltassia on the auction site....i would not purchase from this person...there is no ID and they want lots of $$.

    But I would like to know what it is. It appears darker to me than a Shelob Tolkein

    Miltassia Shelob 'Webmaster' appears to be that dark based on Google search

    Shamelessly putting in a word on my behalf - this link will bring you to photos of my Miltassia Royal Robe - which won an HCC in September of 2011. The cultivar name is 'Abby's Wonder' and it's a deeper magenta than 'Jerry's Pick'. Of course I haven't meristemmed it by the thousands, but the one plant is really thriving and getting ready to be divided. By the way, they're calling Miltassias Bratonias now - you can look up the award although the award photographer didn't get a very good shot of it. Dependng on how it spikes for this summer, I'm going to take it in and hopefully pick up an AM for it - the judges wanted to give it the first time around, but felt there should be incentive to grow it even better.

    Thank you - I was going to offer you a division when it's divided, if you like.
