The form of the third one is very nice. Especially if the petal presentation stays like that. What's the size of that flower?

Nice flowers. What part of South Africa are you in? Did you get the snow earlier this year?
Johannesburg, yes we got the only bit of snow that fell in the area, unfortunately so did a large portion of my Phrags

Gideon, those are some great looking hirsuts! This species is getting hard to find in the states... supplanted by esquirolei. I've seen so few hirsutissimum blooms that I doubt I could distinguish between the two :)

Well, I can't tell the difference, I have asked about the differences plenty of times, without any definitive answers

The second one is my favourite, great colour!!!

But it's a great achievement to flower both. Well done.
