Several years ago, I crossed Star Gazer x Expression. I finally took a photo of a seedling that had 5 blooms. Its been in bloom for over 2 weeks so the flowers are ready to fall off.

Orientals definitely take time and patience to grow from seed. Congratulations on your beautiful bloom.

Evidently, Star Gazer is a good pod parent. I think quite a few hybrids have been derived from it, including being the pod parent to Star Fighter, another beauty. Maybe I should let mine open pollenate and see what I get. Mike's is a real pretty pink.

It almost looks like a pure oriental 'anastasia'.
