|Last fall I ordered SEVERAL of these bulbs because I thought I was ordering Grand Cru... they've started blooming but I really dont beleive it is what I ordered. The reason I ordered so many was I found the yellow & red splotches very nice, but these blooms have orange mixed with ALOT of dark on them. They are pretty, just dont think that its ID is correct.|
Grand Cru is supposed to have more of a red splotch in the middle it looks like in most pics I've seen.
Thanks in advance.

|I'll stick my neck out and say Forever Susan. As far as I know there aren't any others quite like this one.|

|Ayrica, did you perchance order it in a co-op? If so, I'm going to suggest it's Starlette, which is turning out to be surprisingly like Forever Susan. |
Most of the co-ops get their bulbs from Ednie, and I looked on Ednies site, and that one looks quite similar.
It's a beautiful flower. But it's not what you wanted, or ordered.
