    Default Phrag IQ Triple Threat!!!

    Here are three of my phrags in bloom at the same time, opening within 6 days of each other. (my darn chuck acker is soooo slow I wouldn't wait for him!) I will give you a few hints, and you can ask questions in the thread and I will answer them for all to see. If you want to guess a plant or plants name(s), Please PM me.


    Hint #1 The plants on the end have one parent in common

    Hint #2 The middle plant is a primary cross

    Hint #3 The plant on the right side has been open 3 days and the petals are already 10". The middle plant has been open 5 days and the petals are 7.5 ". The left plant just stretched it's legs out overnight.

    Sorry, I'm no Nelson when it comes to photography. The second photo is more true to color.

    Is the common parent of the plants on the ends either caudatum or Grande?

    No fragrance, no pearcei... Now Consider the clue about what's a father and what's a grandfather... that should be a dead give away on one of them........

    And just to spur on your quests - Jason got all three first try (no surprise there) and Tim has got 2 out of 3, although he had #1 and #3 switched.

    Oh man,

    I hadn't seen guesses, so I was gold bricking. Back to work at it! (Maybe I can still beat Hoa...)
