No, they don't vary between species.But the definition of alba with each species doesn’t vary?
I think the shape of Santa Teresa is fuller.Really nice, looks like a watercolor. I got Santa Teresa import about 5 months ago through a German nursery, it was a bit of a struggle getting it going (it had no roots at all) but it's looking good now. Maybe another 2 years to flowering. If its anything like as nice as this one I will be well pleased
No water involved here, Leslie!Lol… please define ‘douche’?
Simply lost in translation and cleared very well by your beautiful explanations!No water involved here, Leslie!
But it turns out, that Yours truly has made a minor language faux-pas, as I use a word, that has slept since the days of Middle English, where it meant "sweet, pleasant, from Anglo-French, from feminine of duz, douz, from latin dulcis, sweet" (Merriam-Webster).
In Danish we have douce as a loanword, most likely from French, to characterize colours, that are soft, pastel like, almost soothing. I thought the word had a parallel use in English, and it was in this sense, that I found it very well characterized your beautiful flower!
