    I like it too: when the plant is more mature it should get up to a dozen flowers on a stalk

    The flower color and form are pleasing and could be impressive with more flowers on a mature plant, but as it is I find it a disappointment compared to either parent. It is interesting to see any hybrid from Christentonia vietnamica though. Thanks for sharing.
