    I inherited back this plant from a buddy after he moved out west. I originally called him ‘Dumbo’ (the plant, not my friend lol) because the petals reminded me of said ears, big and floppy! He is the first to bloom and following not far behind are his mates, an album and a semi-dunkle, both bifloral.

    What a great P. delenatii and heritage of your friend. It big flat ears suit it well and therefore your clonal name is very appropriate. Congrats

    Thanks all. Interestingly enough the delenatiis are the easiest of the parvis to bloom for me, reliably every Jan/Feb, come rain, shine or neglect!

    Dumbo is happy where he is now! He just encourages his friends to come out and play.

    Dumbo’s mates opened finally. Both bifloral.

    All beautiful!
    Delenatii is the easiest parvi to grow and bloom for many people, and I believe this is because their don't go through cold winter like all the other species in the parvi group.

    By the way, does album variety always make smaller blooms?

    The albas now are as large as the regular types, due partly to 2 step breeding.

    Just keep trying till you find a reliably blooming plant!
