I have 4 Phrags. 3 are in spike or bloom.
This is Phrag Eric Young (longifolium hincksianum x besseae).
It is very difficult to get a multi-floral to bloom multiple blooms at a time in semi-arid. This is the second bloom on this spike. The first one had a messed up dorsal so I didn't post it. This one should lift the dorsal a bit higher. When it does I'll add a better picture
Very Nice Harvey.,
Looks just fine!
It's a beauty Harvey, great photo!
Lovely Phrag - nice shots
The Eric Young Foundation grows them ( most of these phrags - and many of them they bred ) very well - of course !. But when we see them on EYOF displays at UK shows, with branched spikes and with flowers all over the place, we ask how they do it - one jokey answer is superglue (!) since for most of us by the time the top of the spike has flowers open, those lower down have dropped off. The difference between our amateur culture, and that by experts in ideal conditions I guess.
Beautiful bloom, compliments
