I can’t hold back my anticipation to post once flowers open since two of my Charles are in bud:

First pic:
Nominate species
(is it called the nominate or standard or wild type when not the Alba form/color/variety)? - first time to bloom

Second pic:
v. Alba with two buds (had a third but
blasted since I waited too long to bring inside from my 85-90 degrees in Florida Summer): - has bloomed twice prior 2/2020 and 9/2020

@ Michael B
Your P. charleworthii f. sandowiae (alba) is outstandingly pretty. Well done and congrats. 👌

@ Leslie Ee
I feel with you that this time your baby is misshaped......but in this case there's always a 'next time'.
