Here's two more blooming now. I took the photos this week near noon. You'd think I'd manage to not wait until the temp reached triple digits, but I had a cow I was trying to track down in the cooler a.m. The first is an unknown pink one. Very stiff, dense foliage that is golden olive with a satin finish.

The next is 'tet Ambroise Verschaffel'. The database lists 'Ambroise Verschaffel', but I'm guessing it's the diploid version. The blooms look the same, but the foliage habit doesn't match. Mine has stiff upright growth.

I really wanted that plant this year, and just didn't have time to order, next year I for sure will. Lovely!
