I received this plant as a gift plant at a region 2 meeting in Columbus OH. When it bloomed the next year I was blown away with the size, shape and color of the bloom. Every large well spaced bloom looks great and I love it.

Pollen is fertile. I have not tried setting pod.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!
