Who doesn’t like a semi alba species catt with go faster stripes?
It’s a favourite form for many species aficionados.
This is the plants’ second blooming and the form and colour are slightly better than last year. The stripes may be a bit darker. It has a particularly strong scent.
Chadwick tells us that good semi alba gaskellianas are quite rare so I’m pleased that this ended up with me.
This is just day three of opening but I wanted to show this before the flower had a chance to grow and reflex.
