    Default Col Sphacetante "Evelyn" X Onc Illustre"Wildman"

    Bought this plant at a yard sale a couple of years ago, it spiked in the coldest part of this past winter so we dragged it in and out as the temps rose and fell, I thought sure it would blast all of the buds but it didn't. It is also the most unphotogenic plant, I finally brought out the green velvet but it still isn't the best pic for a pretty plant. Col Sphacetante "Evelyn" X Onc Illustre"Wildman"
    Thanks for looking.

    Hey Molly, I think it is plenty photogenic. It sure has a lot of nice sprays on it. I think I want one!

    Is it weird that it's not the blooms that caught my attention first but the size and roots of the plant?

    I'm just a sucker for specimen, that's all....LOL

    hi Molly i too have this plant and for me it flowers at Xmas time.This cross loves the heat and feed and water when growing,it also has a habit of multi spiking . I have also used it in a couple of crosses and have in the last 5 months received flasks of the crosses. By the way this cross has been registered and is now called Onc Pacific Space Lustre.The crosses that I have done are Onc Pacific Space Lustre x Wils Carol Easton and Onc Pacific Space Lustre x Issakau Nagatu 'Volcano Queen'

    here is the flower of mine
