    The first one is Haritka "Dream" which has smallish flowers for the type, maybe only 4 cm, but worth growing , I think, for the freedom of flowering and the intense colour.
    The second, if I have got the right order ( and if not I will add a post scrpt after viewing the loaded post ) is an un-named hybrid - the parents being Saachi ( not entirely sure how that is spelled ) x Wave King. Much larger flowers, and a nice shape too , but lacking the intensityof colour. And then Lucky Angel "Smash" which has flowers of very heavy substance - very long lasting as a result.
    All these things are quite free with keikis especially if you don't get the culture right. Some years ago I got lots, now very few ! But I always potted them up - they will flower in the first year on canes no bigger than a pencil, if you use S/H, but it takes many years to get them up to maximum size - I am continually surprised when I get canes bigger than last year after thinking " now they really are full size" - but when I look at my prize D.nobile itself , I see canes 2 feet high, whereas the best of these hybrids is not up to 18 inchs yet.
    But they are so easy, so free with new growths, so worthwhile, even so.
    No,I did get it wrong - the order is Haritka, Lucky Angel, and then Saachi x Wave King. And I think the photography has flattered the last one, it does no look quite so intense, well nowhere near so intense, to my eyes. But Haritka does look that good.
