    This is a first bloom seedling. It has a surprisingly large flower with a strong rosy-peony fragrance. I like it! :)

    I am a member. Carl Austin is selling the Cyps. He bought Gunther Preusse's collection, which is quite extensive and full of some rare species. I've ordered a couple from him - if you're looking to expand your collection Carl is an inexpensive and reliable source.

    Thanx for posting. I believe this is a Frosch cross and is one of my favorite Cyp hybrids.
