    Default Phrag "?" Photos

    The seller thought this was either Andean Fire or Mem. Dick Clements or L'Unique. Wrong, wrong and wrong.... I'm guessing Sorcerers Apprentice. All suggestions on ID are welcome! The blossom has bee open 2 days.

    This is Phragtastic Diane!!!

    I mean that's not the name but what I think the quality of the flower and plant is!

    I love those twisty red petals.

    Good luck with the ID.

    It's definitely a Sorcerer's Apprentice cross--my best guess is SA x lindleyanum, though it does have more blush in the pouch than I'm used to seeing on those.

    looks like it could be SA or at Louis said, one of its hybrids.
