    It is beautiful! Congratulations and kudos for being so patient! And I think I need definitely to do something about my love for red/pink phrags!

    I relly like this one! I don`t know much about them, but the colour is unusual, and lovely,looks like a gentle evening dress..

    Thanks & yes. It is the view off of my porch. Nothing but fields and trees in this direction.

    It is potted in a medium and small bark mix just like all of my other phrags. It grows on the top shelf of the grow bench in th exact center of the space. It likes to drink and gets plenty of air movement. The leaves are constantly moving around because of the fans. Other than that, just have lots of patience.

    Cheers,

    That sound you hear is me gasping "wow, how fantastic" and then sighing with envy. Seriously Bruce, you have a gift with those phrags. Nicely done.

    Beautiful. My all time favorite.

    I have two of them in bloom now. I liked the first one so much I just had to buy another one. I have both of mine in S/H and they both bloom faithfully every year.

    WOW. Maybe I just need to give mine more water then. I do really well with phrags and this is one of the hardest I have ever bloomed.
