    I am especially pleased with the way that this one came out as it is the first ever flowering and normally the bloom is misshapen so I am relieved and impressed with this debut.

    I am surprised by your comment that "normally... misshapen" - I agree that one doesn't get the best flowers on the first ever blooming.
    But I have had one ( whole flask) where every plant produced horrible misshapen flowers every time...
    Whatever - you have a nice one here. Dick Clem' is usually a good grower.

    Thank you Geoff. I am happy with it. I just hope now that I get a branch or two!!

    Love this one. Mine is in spike and can hardly wait for it to bloom. It is such a nice phrag and always reliable. Good job!

    Very nice. Dick Clements is one of the nicest besseae hybrids out there, IMO.
