    Lovely closeups! I personally think that some species, like Schilleriana, Stuartiana and Amabilis are so underrated these days....everyone is looking for that perfect bellina, which has been crossed over and over again. IMHO, the simplest phals are usually the prettiest!

    that one i think is a leopard prince (dtps. maybe) but i'm pretty sure it is not a species, the mottled leaves are only at its underside ???

    Giovanna, I agree, simple is beautiful, but sometimes alittle "flair" is nice. Dawn, no the leaves are mottled top and bottom, so the cross is probably with a species and the flower from whatever the other parent might be.

They, too, have mottled leaves and I assume are a cross with a species like schilleriana and some spotted hybred...I doubt they are a variation like my other plant
    Hi Bikerdoc,
    Could you post pictures of this plants leaves, both top and bottom? The flower shape indicates a hybrid, it's to 'round' for a species with mottled leaves and it has kicked my curiosity in.
    Thanks,
    Al

    ok....I have 4 different plants all with mottled leaves: the species P. schilleriana which I have posted close-ups, the plant which I believe to be P. schilleriana v purpurea, and two noid's. Since I can only post 4 pics per reply, I will post in succession. The bottom of the noid leaves are green while the bottom of the species plants have a green-violet appearance. The pics are arranged with flower/leave of each plant.

    Thanks Bikerdoc,
    O.K., so let's put aside the two P. schilleriana, we have pretty much cleared those up although I can't be positive about the v purpurea. If it were mine I wouldn't have any problem with labeling it that.
    Let's concentrate on the two NOID's. I'm pretty much tied up today and I need to do some research before making a guess for you. I don't think I'll ever be able to actually "name that plant" but I think I can come up with the background species in their pedigree. I'll post sometime in the next couple of days what I *think* you might have. Keep in mind, this is just my opinion and there are folks here with a lot more experience than me. I just get a kick out of research. Weird, huh?
    Thanks for the great pics!

    That is what makes this forum sooooo enjoyable. People like you who take such a passionate interest. I don't ever think I'll know a name for the noid's but they are good lookers and the leaves just add to their beauty. I thank you and applaud you for your sincere efforts... My interest is peeked, how or what do you consult for your research?

    I spend hours backtracking lineage from countless books I have amassed and the web is a vital source of information. It is basically like setting up a pedigree or family tree for a breed of dog, all the family is there, you just have to find it. LOL
    Take care,
