    Thumbs up Blc Lois McNeil 'Acer' x L. purpurata var. schusteriana

    We have two of these in bloom. A gift from my late friend, Gin. Thinking about her a bunch lately. She passed in March of last year and I sure miss my sweet friend. I am 100% sure this would have bloomed way better in her care. Anyway, enjoy...

    Awe, thank you. The plants are both huge. I'm sure they could produce many more blooms. I haven't taken the best care of the orchids lately. I guess these are encouragement blooms. haha...
