    Petals are a little floppy, but it has a natural spread of more than 12cm. The color is a little muted, but I like it and will keep it to see how it looks on the next blooming. Mike

    It's gorgeous. I think it's really nice. Granted, I also like floppy sepals and petals on my Parvies. The color looks good to me as well. Only real question: Is it fragrant?

    It's such a great hybrid that a few ruffles don't really diminish it. Size and color always solid on LT to my eyes.

    Wow! Really like it. Reminds me some how of the face of a blood hound. Big nose and floppy ears.

    Much better than mine, Mike.
    The first seedling (from the same batch as these, right?) that flowered for me was back in the summer, but it was very wonky and small.
    The color was not good, either. It was among the largest and best growing plant of the few I have. It is sending up two new growths. I'm not sure if I want to keep it.
    In the meantime, I'm patiently waiting for others to bloom.

    The dark deep color is very nice, I always like Liberty Taiwan much more than Lola Bird
