    Default Cymbium 'Black Magic'

    Did not know this was in bud, much less blooming, surprise ! I almost lost the plant after repotting it 2 years ago, it reached a point where I thought it was a goner and didn't have the heart to throw it out, so I put it aside and ignored it and now it's happy. Maybe it's trying to tell me something. Has a nice scent to it also, photos not the best, sorry.Name:  black cym 1 (Copy).jpg
