    Very pretty, I'm curious to see if it lightens when it is a little older. Very nice photo!

    Heather, The others that I have seen were lighter when fully open, however, I do hope that it stays as dark as it is now. I'll post another pic when it has fully oppened and matured.

    Very nice! I have never seen such a dark one before. They usually get lighter as they age but you just never know how they will turn out. Do post another pic when the flower is fully opened, I'm very curious!

    Nice photo Matt! I love the deep red, and the yellow pouch offers such a great contrast. Fabulous plant!

    That is very unusual! I have only seen Belle Hogue Point in pink. Never the dark red you have there! I really like it.

    Here is one we have. This one is named Belle Hougue Point. It is really light pink. (maybe a different cross??) I took this photo last August or September.


    Cheers!

    The correct name is Belle Hougue Point. Registered by the EYOF in 1997, presumably after some locale in merry old England (as are most of their grex and cultivar names).
