    First flowering of a meristem plant . Should do much better, next time around.
    Quite decent sized flowers, maybe almost 3 inches north-south on the best, but again I expect an improvement.
    I have not noticed any perfume yet - proably needs to be a lot warmer and sunnier than it is at the moment for perfume to be released - mid-winter, here in England - temperature in my garden this sunny morning , is only 7˚C. and the greenhouse, where I collected the plant from, was just at the minimum set by the thermostat, 16˚C.. Roll on Spring - can't come too soon for me.....

    Very pretty Geoff! The colors of the petals remind me of yellow jackets!

    Beautiful, Geoff. I suspect that when the sun is out full, it will let go of that perfume fragrance. hahaha.... AND, I am not a fan of this cold, grey weather either. BRING on SPRING!! I completely agree. Unfortunately, for the people in my area, we are going to get much colder before we start seeing warmer days. Winter is here...

    Cheers,
    BD
