    Default Phal Summer Beach

    I bought this as a wee little seedling two years ago. It bloomed last summer for the first time and has bloomed two times since then. The color is actually more peach/apricot but I had a hard time getting the light right yesterday morning.

    Very, very handsome coloring. It must really appreciate the growing conditions that you provide. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone I grow this one in s/h in the sunroom. It gets a good blast of morning sun and some sun from the skylight as the sun passes over the house. Here's a pic of the whole plant - it's always had the purplish cast to the leaves but the color has intensified a bit as I've increased the amount of sun it receives. I seems to like where it lives......I'm hoping it will continue to bloom twice a year!

    The leaves aren't jagged - when I resized the pic quality went all pixeled on me!
