    Default Phrag. China Dragon

    I love this phrag! It has been in bloom since last spring sending up one spike after the other. This is the fourth and last spike but there are a lot of new growths growing at a steady rate and should be producing spikes by late spring or early summer. As I have said I started concentrating on papas and phrags. Phrags are by far my favorite. I just wish they weren't so expensive.

    Bill just remember your worth the extra money. This Phrag obviously agrees to just keep on growing and putting out productive spikes. Wonderful blooms Bill! AL

    In bloom since last spring! Wow! That's very impressive. It's a beautiful phrag.. I only have two phrags and they've both grown slowly and haven't bloomed at all but I still hold out hope. I might look for a hybrid like yours.

    Almost a year in bloom. That's amazing Bill. I only have one Phrag (Phragmipedium Grande) and it only bloomed for about a couple of months. It's putting out a new fan that's growing quite fast, so I hope I'll see it bloom again perhaps late spring or early summer.
