Thanks....These are from bulbs I purchased this year. I have about 20 from last year resting in the basement. I'll bring those up 2-3 at a time after Christmas to extend the bloom season.

I love Blushing Bride to...lovely form...nice wide petals. I want to get Red Pearl next year but I've bought plenty this year already.. Here it is at a local nursery. It is even darker than the picture....almost a black sheen.

Nice photo of the grouping. I don't think that I've ever seen Cinderella before. Where did you get it?

Cinderella came from Lowes. I added it to the data base but didn't add it here.
