    Yes, I know the flowers are tiny. Have you seen a kovachi bloom? They are GIGANTIC! Bigger than a man's hand! And they are closely related to besseae and I wonder how they stayed undiscovered for so long.

    Exactly what do you all mean by "tiny"?

    Heather, besseae blooms are about 2-3" wide, a lot smaller than the larger Phrags. Other tiny ones are schlimii and fischeri

    Nice besseae, Peter! Mine is also tiny, maybe 6-7 cm or so. I think the awarded ones only get up to 9 or 10 cm, although there is a 4N strain floating around now...

    Hey thanks, Jason!

    Mine was a first time bloomer, so hopefully blooms are larger next time. Yes, there is a 4N available out there.

    Sorry, I only have one plant that bloomed for the first time this past late winter/early spring and a new growth has now emerged. It will be a long time before I can divide the plant. These are not cheap plants especially plants of excellent quality and awarded parents.

    Thanks for asking.

    OK, I do remember this one now. I thought it was a different picture.
