    Another classic white of days long gone. Part of my heirloom collection. One of the first to be discovered in the jungle (as the story goes).

    Huge pure white flowers measuring almost 7 inches (approximately 18 cm). This year is its first bloom after a setback. It can reach 9 inches (approx 23 cm) on a strong plant.

    Fragrant and long lasting, over 6 weeks and as long 10 weeks.

    Shape is not as great as the best white trianaes, with less that full round petals, but the immense size for a species is noteworthy.

    Congrats on getting this cultivar. When happy it will flower 2-3 huge flowers for you! I'll see if I can find a previous flowering pic that was quite nice.
