    A couple of relatively new plants to the collection

    This purpuratum is from LittleFrog Farms. Going to breed it with Gego's flower.

    Got a couple of P. virens from SlipperKing that I believe came from a Hawaiian grower. This is a hard flower for me to photograph. The pink petal tips have a metalic like effect that reflect almost white.

    Again, nice stuff Rick. I have two of the javonicum /virens coming up as well. Now I know what to expect.

    Ya actually much cooler in real life. Both of the plants I got from you have added 2 or 3 new growths and the second one is just starting to spike too.
