Wow Istvan, indeed this form seems to be very rare. 👌 To be honest ..... I didn't even know that this form exists.

Such beauty! I have always loved this color form of tenebrosa the first time I laid eyes on it at the Tokyo Dome show.

I finally was able to get it from Japan (3 seedlings, but one perished, slow growers).

Istvan, can you take a pic of the flowers outside?
