    Thrilled to see one of these finally in bud. Imported bare root May 18, 2015. Although this hybrid has a reputation of being difficult to bloom, Mr Chen said this remake will be easier. I'm doing something right.

    Not an easy one to bloom so this is very exciting.

    I've never had success with the multi x parvi hybrids either, they grow and look healthy but never bloom. It's really frustrating because the flowers are absolutely stunning. Great looking Woluwense, plants like this really tempt me into trying them again.
