It's a beauty but this supposedly sold for $365 in eBay...way out of my price range.

Price will come down as more people own it. And it's not all THAT different from an old standby like Duke... Whistling

You are correct. We acquired a Duke last year. Hope to get some blooms this year.

Definitely a beauty. Nothing I can afford.

Give it time. In a few years it will be much more common and more readily available.

Omg! I like it, I love it, I want it !! Very unique coloring. I wonder if it's easy or hard to root? I'll wait like the rest of you. I really don't agree with cuttings being sold for more than $50-$60. If I ever get it, I promise to share. Good luck everyone.

Those are not cuttings but grafted plants. And while I agree that the price is steep, I know first hand how hard it is to import plants from Southeast Asia, and how many the seller likely lost in transit. So - you need to calculate that into the price.
