This is a bit late but here it is!
This one bloomed every year like a clock work around Valentine’s Day in the last four years but always with only 6-7 flowers each time.
This year, it gave me its best ever blooming!
very strongly scented with sweet rose fragrance 😍 perfect for stay in Valentine’s 😁

My schill is blooming now and all the blooms have been open about two weeks. Adore
the subtle fragrance. Poor thing, I keep my big nose in it every time I pass by.

Well bloomed. Such a rewarding species. Has it kept the 5-6 leaves usually?

Looks like a linebreed one. Very full round flowers and good color. First class schilli!
Mine has also flowered around Valentine. I brought it home instead of roses. The sweet fragrance was a pleasure.

No, it would maintain 3-4 leaves as it always grew one new leaf a year and lost one.
But then this past one year, it grew two new leaves. I guess it has finally decided to pick up a speed a bit.
Such a root champion, though! The pot is full of roots and I'm not looking forward to repotting it whenever that might be!

Yes. Both parents are bred for dark round flowers.
I really like the fact that this pink flowered plant blooms on around Valentine's Day since I stopped buying red roses. So hard to find and a bit expensive on the actual day. Plus, todays roses seem to be without fragrance.

Very nice schill, looks very beefy. Can't wait to see you bloom it as an adult with 30-something flowers!

Great sight your Phal. schilleriana. 👌 👌
I can confirm the annual blooming like clockwork because mine does the same way.....but so far the maximum flower count was 8 flowers, also this year.
I was a bit too late due to other activities, maybe even too lazy to take a photo but that's life. Also the patterns on the leaves are great and defintely a good reason to grow this plant.

I had given up on it and ready to accept the low flower count. Now, I'm looking forward to next year's bloom.
Or maybe another few years of 17-20 flowers before making another big jump.
I'm going to keep it and find out. :)

Thank you.
Yes, it's worth keeping just for the leaves alone. :)

Can I ask where you sourced this plant from? Thanks!

Mine came from Mr. Lin too.
I bought two from him and kept this one because of darker flowers.
He sold some more of the species bred for dark pink colors.
I saw at leas two more rounds on eBay in the last couple of years.
