  • Posted by bxncbx (NYC - Zone 7a) on Mar 5, 2023 5:11 PM concerning plant:
    This plant is a blooming machine. I purchased it at the end of a bloom cycle. It was without blooms for a couple of weeks before I saw new flower stalks appearing. It now has 20 blooms with more unopened buds. Each flower stalk has 1-2 blooms.

    This is a large plant with large leaves. The blooms are 2-3 inches. I have it under grow lights as my windowsills are very narrow.

    I definitely recommend this cultivar!
