    Matt, that's a stunning flower, I think. Very well done.

    I have some Phrag. Les Dirouilles 4N which should bloom within the year. I'll be sure to post a pic when they do, and you can let me know if you want some pollen from them.

    Wow, I thought Grande was a difficult Phrag to cross?

    That is a very nice flower!

    What are you thinking of crossing it with?
    I maybe able to help.

    interesting petals on that one...horizontal for a bit and then straight down.

    Mike: you're right in that most phrag hybrids don't breed well at all...until lately when all this polyploidy business took off. matt's plant is 4N and should breed well.
