The second Don Wimber sibling has its first flower open, while the first one I posted earlier has finally opened its second flower. These are siblings from a flask purchased by Clark, from chuck acker. The second plants flower is a lot larger and darker than the first plant

That face on flower in the last picture is exactly what I tell student judges to look for. See the little teeth? Polyploids often have teeth. That is a fault for judging purposes - but we aren't judging, are we? :)

I like the darker flower a lot. And the other one isn't bad. Sometimes (often) they will re-bloom without the 'toothiness'. And some people think it is cool. I kind of think it is cool...

The teeth are unfortunate and I hope they disappear with future blooming. I like
both actually.

Looking back at pics of the first flower I see it had a full rim of teeth :D . Some slippers look okay with teeth and others not so attractive.

That is one sweet plant!
These are good pictures, but it hard to capture that intensely rich color that you see in person. There is nothing quite like the color of Don Wimber and Ouaisne .
Congratulations!
