I think I'm getting old.
I got this blooming and thought it was Nile Plum. Then I remembered I have Victorian Days, too, in the same bed.
I keep on looking at pictures but can't decide. Can any of you help? I'm finding myself not great at looking at details. Thank You!

Wow, those two are very similar! If it is the first one of the two blooming in your garden then I would lean toward it being Nile Plum because that is an EM bloom while Victorian Days is a M bloom. Not that that is always the most accurate I am finding out.

Whichever one it is...it is lovely!

I agree with Amber. It also looks like Victorian Days has a more pronounced edge that is yellow gold. Many blessings to everyone!

Many thanks. I labelled as Nile Plum a single fan that is slowly growing and has some scapes (the very first). This, the one that bloomed, is a double fan. I saw that blooming season is not a trait I can rely on, many M bloomed before E or EE this year.
All that I know is that Victorian Days already bloomed the past year and this is my shot of it:



Nile Plum seems to have more triangular petals. Or is it me seeing it?
