    Default Phrag. caudatum

    Petals currently 44cm - 17 inches- long, but maybe they are still growing...and no-one has any satisfactory explanation of why !

    Two growths in flower, two on each. Could do better ? Certainly a talking piece !

    With special thanks to Nikon here - who can focus my camera for me, whilst I can't. I hope it is sharp on the screen !

    I love caudatum. I want to get of these myself. My mont fallu petals weren't as long as I had hoped so now I will have to just buy another long petaled phrag -any excuse!

    I have a Tall Tails too, (Caudatum x Walisii). I have yet to see it bloom though. It arrived with a blasted spike just peeking out of the crown last year and so far the new fan hasn't grown very much since. I shall have a long wait I think. I love it though so I don't mind waiting
