    Yes it is from a German nursery, you got that right Perhaps you don't know I am living in Germany for the past 5 years (first at Bremen, and now close to Frankfurt), the country flag represents my Nationality and where my greenhouses are hehe

    I agree to this point about 75%. I would consider the growth habitat a slight improvement and would wait for a few more blooming cycles to see, if it is free flowering and very floriferous to draw my final conclusion, but flower wise you are spot on.

    I also hope so Yew, I have to still hear back from the cross originator, if he is ok with it.

    Just received the word from the vendor who got it from a wholesale nursery in Germany close to the Netherlands who made the cross. Now I wait for the answer from the big nursery
