    Jason,

    That must be the wierdest Phrag. besseae I have seen! It looks like it has Phrag. besseae and Phrag. dalessandroi in it, and could be a multiple crossing of those two species or the result? Also, what happened to the lower flower, did it bloom without a staminodial shield?

    Thanks for the photos, much appreciated! :)

    Jason, I love that besseae. Reminds me of some of those besseae/schlimii crosses that have fischeri in them.
