I got this one, named Happy Gold, from khwarunee on Ebay. I am very pleased with it. And, on the first blooming, I managed to get a seed pod, wheeee. Recently Mr. Ko on Ebay had an auction of ten seeds from a photo that resembled this flower closely. The bidding was won by someone who paid $38 for the ten seeds. Hahahahaha!

Woweee, I am spending my retirement on plants. I was looking, contemplating, my lovelies this morning. I usually sit with a cup of coffee for a bit with the collection-gang-group, ?? every morning. The thought hit me, I wish I had as much lettuce, carrots, onions, parsley, cilantro, cucumbers, yellow crookneck squash... But, no, I grow one of the most poisonous plants on earth. Hum.

Thanks. A pale yellow that 'blushes' pink with age and sunlight.

When the flower is "perfect" it's nearly round. The petals are very wide and blunt.

$24 from ebay--- And she has a bunch of new stuff... The triple white named Snow White is gorgeous, too.

I don't know if I'm ready to deal with being a seller on ebay. I'm no good at getting to the Post Office!!!!!! (Doris, your seeds might get there by tomorrow?)

This is a bud on the multiflora at the bot gardens. I didn't notice the cobweb when I took the photo! I'll have to look closely tomorrow to see if it's those durn spider mite things.

I wonder if this is the same species? One of the two huge Adeniums that I dug from my friend's yard. She said it's never bloomed. It has gotten buds twice, but they fall off at this size, booo. A. multiflorum is from Kenya, I believe...
