    That's just what the tag says! I'm not much of a slipper person. I spent a couple of years early on trying to grow them, and for the life of me couldn't rebloom them. So, I kept the 3 that I did rebloom, and I gave the others way.

    My Phrag SA is pretty much the standard form & colour.
    Some are redder & some have longer petals.

    As you can see colour & shape is very different.

    Aaron, it looks like Phrag. Living Fire. Mine is about to bloom, so I'll post pictures and you can decide. SA is one of the parents, so that could explain some of the tag mixup.

    Phrag Living Fire seems like a good match.
