    Default Lovely Phal. bellina

    First time blooming of the first one. I like the shape and green on this one. The other is my first bellina. It's has ugly strappy leaves and overly star shaped blooms. Has three spikes so it gets to stay. I love bellina's. Have a total of 4

    I also love the first one. I have 6 bellinas or violacias in spike, seems like forever, I wish they would hurry up and bloom so I could share photos.

    luckygrower - They are so slow going from bud to bloom but once they do, it's one after another for a long, long time. I also have a "Nancy" cultivar that is just opening. Have three violacia's and I find them harder to get to bloom than the bellinas.

    Oh, I love the first one. Does it still happen to be blooming? When it is nearly finished, I'd love to cross it with one of mine. Love the green/purple contrast.
