    Default Phrag. besseae 'Bleeding Heart' x 'Colossal'

    Here she comes, gonna be a charmer, for sure....

    This one was in bud when I got it. I have had it for a couple of weeks now and the bud progressed pretty quickly. Started out like he small one but a bit bigger. Then a couple of days ago I noticed that the color was starting to show through. I'll post again when it is fully open.

    Edit: Oops, I did not notice until I posted the picture that the small bud actually is showing some color too!!!

    I'm looking forward to seeing it fully open. I can't wait for mine to bloom again.

    Happy New Year!

    Near fully open. I am hoping it will be done by tomorrow afternoon when I get home from work so I can see and photograph it in natural light.
