A seldom seen primary, popowii x sargentianum. This cross took about 6 years before it reached blooming size. Now the plants are huge and multiple-growth, spiking randomly for the first time. The flowers are quite large with strong red in the petals. Crossed with besseae makes Flash Gordon, which is a very impressive deep red flower similar to a Jason Fischer but with down-swept petals. I'll post a pic of that sometime, but for now enjoy Red Lightning!

Hey, that's pretty awesome!

I have a nice seedling of Flash Gordon (didn't realize that was the name). Please do post a photo sometime.

Wow. :drool: Very nice. Love the colour and twisted petals. Like the shorter leaves on this one too.
