I made this cross 3 years ago. The color is a soft peach and creamy white. Farmed out some of the 50+ plus seedlings to friends. And now the first one has finally bloomed! I am so excited. I have no idea how the other seedlings will turn out - not even sure if they will bloom this year or next year, or if they will all look the same or different. I expect some differences. From my studies I learned I should cross some of my babies back together and then the next generation will bring the best results - another 3 year wait! But right now I am so excited because I don't see anything quite like my new baby on emarylis.com! Yippee! Hurray! So what do you think??

Christie, I really like the color! Beautiful, great job!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
