    3 King Charles all from the same sib cross. The last one also has unusually variegated foliage. I will be selling them when the weather is warm and if any interest is expressed in them. I believe the first 2 have some potential for breeding if one were inclined.

    I'm in love with the first one.
    Second one has a nice shape, but color is meh.
    The last one seems typical of the cross.

    All are decent flowers, but I like the form and petal width of number two the best while the other two have better colors. Nice job blooming all three and thanks for the comparison pics!:)

    All three are different and have their own positive characteristics. I love the form of the second one though.
