    14 lovely flowers/buds on 4 flower spikes - that's a real eye catcher.

    I love it! Very nice. The petal stance is very pleasing, and that's coming from someone who usually prefers long, pendant petals on a phillie.

    I think a hybrid should be some sort of improvement, I don't like a frame hybrids

    Amazing grace! :clap:

    Just curious, as a relative newbie: how old is your division - and for how long have you grown it?!

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    I cant remember when i got it but maybe in 2009? Not sure.

    The division i bought was a huge clump so this clone is probably decades old. It has an AM and i think it also was a GM/WOC. If anyone has the award info that might.give a clue how old it is...

    This plant is about 10 growths today.
