    Default Miltassia Dark Star

    Sharing this very early to show the color as it is a bit darker than last year which I'm liking! The other pic is to show how many spikes will be blooming - approx. 35. I'll share again once all opened but I was thinking the color might begin to fade before they all open. Or maybe that's just an excuse - just want to share my excitement!

    Thank you all very much! Will post when fully opened. I wouldn't even know where to begin on the judging. I do live in a smaller area with only one show a year.

    List of AOS judging centers. There are two or three in Florida. Does take the better part of a day depending on how many plants are brought in. They will give you some paperwork to fill out and are pretty good about lending a hand with it. You have to give us another pic when its really rocking!

    Now that is what I would call a specimen plant can not wait to see all of those spike open, it never works out for me to have all the spikes I get on some plants to bloom all at the same time, except a few that is.
