    Default Alcr. Dragon Wings 'Puff' Still can't smell it!

    This is my Alcr. Dragon Wings 'Puff'. From my research, it's supposed to have a fragrance, but I can't perceive it. Even so, I love it and really like the color. It is a first time bloomer for me.

    I would suggest you check with the vendor to verify the name. Dragon Wings is not a registered name. It might possibly be Alcra. Dragon Baby (Dragon Flight x Onc. Sharry Baby); it shows pretty obvious influence of something like Sharry Baby.

    Thanks for posting the cross, Michael! I had wondered upon seeing Carmen's flowers if Sharry Baby was in the mix.

    Puff the Magic Dragon, lived by the sea...wait, do you live by the sea?

    Very nice looking bloom, i like the weird and different, and this reminds me somewhat of Sharry Baby.
    Fingers xd that the scent will project itself in the next day or so!

    Very pretty. Maybe the scent will come soon. If it does have Sharry Baby in the mix it should start smelling like a candy bar soon.

    It is smelling! The smell reminds me of Dr. Pepper.

    I am glad it does have a fragrance! It is disappointing when they don't. Beautiful coloring!
    One of my daughters loved the song 'Puff the Magic Dragon' when she was little and always borrowed the CD from the library. I miss those days!
