Just a little something blooming the other day. I've been trying to get a kovachii to bloom since flasks were legal to purchase (still have that paperwork somewhere, I think). Spent a lot of money on this project - not even sure if this is from one of those original flasks.

Lovely. Plans for the pollen?
I put one on a nice Cardinale, and the other on... Something else. I think my good Barbara Leann. She is in there somewhere. Can't remember what I put on it. I don't have much luck with Phrag crosses - I used to but they hate me lately. On the plus side they are quick to mature.

Fantastic! Really nice color...
how big is the flower? Long-lasting?

Didn't measure it (will be bigger next year), but about the length of my hand. Seems long lasting but I pollinated it a few days after it opened. Flower is still there (without a pouch) after a couple weeks, that is a good sign that the cross probably took.

The contrast color between purple and white is wonderful
