Very nice Commander selfing... I tend to like Commander selfs a lot actually, they are very easy to grow, and bloom very freely ( unlike the motherplant !). There were many named ones Blackbird, Whitethroat, Nightingale, and some more, quite a few have been awarded by the RHS. Blackbird can be really very dark, and it is one of the best breeders with the earlier crosses of Maudiae vini. roth BB x Maudiae vini actually gave many very good flowers, without any color break, and of good to excellent shape. I have a big plant of BB, but oddly enough, though it is a very free grower, I have never seen divisions of those roths on sale...

Thanks everyone. I can't wait for the next blooming...the flowers should be spectacular if this is what it does as a baby.

**phew** it would be so bad if i made a mistake, haha. i really enjoyed all the plants u brought to the meeting yesterday. it was really awesome--imagine all the intense lights u must be supplying to get the multiflorals to grow and bloom so well. guess this is wat time/love/care results in ^^
